these only partial or imperfect returns, or no returns at all, had been received by the 
post-office department when this statement was compiled. 

The asterisks (* *) at name of Chocorna are to call attention to the fact that Choconia

COLONIAL GOVERNMENTS. 

The title by which England claimed North America originated in the dis- 
coveries made by Cabot. In March, 149G, Henry the Sever.th commissioned 
John Cabot and his three sons, Sebastian, Lewis, and Sanctms, to proceed 
on a voyage of discovery. Under this authority Cabot and his son Sebastian 
sailed in May, 1497, discovered Labrador coast June 24, 1497, subsequently 
sailed along the coast of the mainland and claimed for England the territory 
from the Gulf of Mexico to the north to an indefinite extent. 

The colonies, as to their forms of government, may be considered under 
three classes : 

1. Provincial or Royal. Under this form of government the governor 
aud council were appointed by the king to rule under his instructions. The 
governor had power to establish courts, raise military forces, and to call 
legislative assemblies of freeholders and others, which he could at any time 
dissolve, and the proceedings of which he could negative. All local laws 
passed by these assemblies, to be in force, required the approval of the king. 
New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, A'irginia, North Carolina, South 
Carolina, and Georgia were colonies of this class. 

2. Proprietary. Under this form certain inividuals held from the king 
the right as proprietaries of the colonies, which they held as if the colonies 
were feudal principalities. They held the same authority as the king in the 
provincial colonies. Lord Baltimore was proprietary of Maryland, and "Wil- 
liam Penn of Pennsylvania and Delaware. The Carolinas and New Jersey 
were originally proprietary colonies. 

3. Charter. Under this form, the powers and rights were vested by a 
charter from the king. At the time of the Revolution the only charter colo- 
nies were Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

The colonies were politically distinct, but circumstances often required a 
amity of action. The earliest instance of importance occurred in 1643, -when 
-the colonies of Connecticut, New Haven, Massachusetts, and Plymouth formed 
an alliance for protection against the Indians and Dutch, under the name 
■of " The United Colonies of New England." 

A convention met at Albany June 19, 1754, composed of twenty-five com- 
missioners from colonies as follows: New Hampshire, 4; Massachusetts, 5: 
Connecticut, 3; Rhode Island, 2; New York, 5; Pennsylvania, 4, and Mary- 
land, 2. Virginia and New Jersey although invited sent no delegates. Their 
principal object was to deliberate upon the best means for defence in view 
of the impending war with France. At the suggestion of the commissioners 
from Massachusetts, a plan of confederation was proposed. A draft, mostly 
written by Franklin, was drawn up, which was submitted to parliament ami 
the colonies. It was rejected by all the colonies, and met with no approval 
in England. The convention adjourned July 11, 1754. 

A convention assembled at New York, October 7, 17C5, represented as fol- 
lows: Massachusetts, 3; Rhode Island, 2; Connecticut, 3; New York, 5; New 
Jersey, 3; Pennsylvania, 3; Delaware, 2; Maryland, 3; South Carolina, 3. They 
published a declaration of rights, and adjourned October 24. 

The first definite suggestion for a continental congress was made May 17. 
1774, by a town meeting in Providence, R. I. The house of representatives 
of Massachusetts passed a similar suggestion, June 17. Delegates were ap- 
pointed in twelve colonies, and the first continental congress was organized 
at Philadelphia, September 5, 1 774. 

DECLARATION OF RIGHTS. 
In Congress, October 14, 1774. 

Whereas, since the close of the last war, the British parliament, claiming 
a power of right to bind the people of America by statutes in all cases 
whatsoever, hath, in some acts, expressly imposed taxes on them, and in 
others, under various pretences, but in fact for the purpose of raising rev- 
enue, hath imposed rates and duties payable in these colonies, established a 
"board of commissioners with unconstitutional powers, and extended the 
jurisdiction of courts of admiralty, not only for collecting said duties, but 
for the trial of causes merely arising within the body of a county; and 

"Whereas, in consequence of other statutes, judges, who before held ouly 
■estates at will in their offices, have been made dependent on the crown alone 
for their salaries, and standing armies kept in time of peace; and 

"Whereas, it has lately been resolved in parliament, that by force of a 
statute made in the thirty-fifth year of the reign of King Henry the Eighth, 
colonists may be transported to England, and tried there upon accusations 
lor treasons and misprisions, or concealments of treasons, committed in the 
colonies, and, by a late statute, such trials have been directed in cases therein 
mentioned; and

DECLARATION OF RIGHTS.

Whereas, in the last session of parliament three statutes were made, — 
one entitled an " Act to discontinue, in such manner and for such time as 
are therein mentioned, the landing and discharging, lading, or shipping of 
goods, wares, and merchandise, at the town and within the harbor of Boston, 
in the province of Massachusetts Bay, in Xorth America " ; another, entitled 
an "Act for the better regulating the government of the province of Mas- 
sachusetts Bay, in New England"; and another, entitled an -'Act for the 
impartial administration of justice in the cases of persons questioned for 
any act done by them in the execution of the law, or for the suppression of 
riots and tumults, in the province of Massachusetts Bay, in New England"; 
and another statute was then made, " for making more effectual provision 
for the government of the province of Quebec, etc. " ; all which statutes 
are impolitic, unjust, and cruel, as well as unconstitutional, and most dan- 
gerous and destructive of American rights; and 

Whereas, assemblies have been frequently dissolved, contrary to the rights 
of the people, when they attempted to deliberate on grievances: and their 
dutiful, humble, loyal, and reasonable petitions to the crown for redress 
have been repeatedly treated with contempt by his majesty's ministers of 
state ; 

The good people of the several colonies of New Hampshire, Massachusetts 
Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New 
Jersey, Pennsylvania, New Castle, Kent, and Sussex on Delaware, Maryland, 
Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, justly alarmed at these arbi- 
trary proceedings of parliament and administration, have severally elected, 
constituted, and appointed deputies to meet and sit in general congress in 
the city of Philadelphia, in order to obtain such establishment as that their 
religion, laws, and liberties may not be subverted. Whereupon, the depu- 
ties so appointed being now assembled, in a full and free representation of 
these colonies, taking into their most serious consideration the best means 
of attaining the ends aforesaid, do, in the first place, as Englishmen, their 
ancestors, in like cases have usually done, for effecting and vindicating their 
rights and liberties, declare : 

That the inhabitants of the English colonies in North America, by the im- 
mutable laws of nature, the principles of the English constitution, and the 
several charters or compacts, have the following rights : 

Resolved, 1, That they are entitled to life, liberty, and property, and they 
have never ceded to any sovereign power whatever a right to dispose of 
either without their consent. 

Resolved, 2, That our ancestors, who first settled these colonies, were at 
the time of their emigration from the mother country entitled to all the 
rights, liberties, and immunities of free and natural-born subjects within 
the realm of England. > 

Menolretl, 3, That by such emigration they by no means forfeited, surren- 
dered, or lost any of those rights, but that they were, and their descendants 
now are, entitled to the exercise and enjoyment of all such of them as 
their loeal and other circumstances enable them to exercise and enjoy.

Resolved, 4, That the foundation of English liberty, and of all free govern- 
ment, is a right in the people to participate in their legislative council; and 
as the English colonists are not represented, and from their local and other 
circumstances cannot properly he represented, iu the British parliament, they 
are entitled to a free and exclusive power of legislation in their several 
provincial legislatures, where the right of representation can alone be pre- 
served, in all cases of taxation and internal polity, subject only to the nega- 
tive of their sovereign, in such manner as has heretofore been used and 
accustomed. But, from the necessity of the case, and a regard to the mutual 
interest of both countries, we cheerfully consent to the operation of such 
acts of the British parliament as are bona f'le, restrained to the regulation 
of our external commerce, for the purpose of securing the commercial ad- 
vantages of the whole empire to the mother country, and the commercial 
benefits of its respective members ; excluding every idea of taxation, internal 
or external, for raising a revenue on the subjects in America without their 
consent. 

Resolved, 5, That the respective colonies are entitled to the common law 
of England, and more especially to the great and inestimable privilege of 
being tried by their peers of the vicinage, according to the course of that law. 

Resolved, 6, That they are entitled to the benefit of such of the English 
statutes as existed at the time of their colonization, and which they have, 
by experience, respectively found to be applicable to their several local and 
other circumstances. 

Resolved, 7, That these, his majesty's colonies, are likewise entitled to all 
the immunities and privileges granted and confirmed to them by royal char- 
ters, or secured by their several codes of provincial laws. 

Resolved, 8, That they have a right peaceably to assemble, consider their 
grievances, and petition the king; and that all prosecutions, prohibitory 
proclamations, and commitments for the same, are illegal. 

Resolved, 9, That the keeping a standing army in these colonies in times 
of peace, without the consent of the legislature of that colony in which such 
army is kept, is against law. 

Resolved, 10, It is indispensably necessary to good government, and ren- 
dered essential by the English constitution, that the constituent branches 
of the legislature be independent of each other; that, therefore, the exercise 
of legislative power in several colonies, by a council appointed during the 
pleasure of the crown, is unconstitutional, dangerous, and destructive to the 
freedom of American legislation. 

All and each of which the aforesaid deputies, in behalf of themselves and 
their constituents, do claim, demand, and insist on, as their indubitable 
rights and liberties, which cannot be legally taken from them, altered, or 
abridged byjany power whatever, without their own consent, by their rep- 
resentatives injtheir several provincial legislatures. 

In the course of our inquiry, we find many infringements and violations 
of the foregoing rights, which, from an ardent desire that harmony and 






DECLARATION OF RIGHTS. 



21 



mutual intercourse of affection and interest may be restored, we pass over 
for the present, and proceed to state such acts and measures as have been 
adopted since the last war which demonstrate a system formed to enslave 
America. 

Resolved, That the following acts of parliament are infringements and vio- 
lations of the rights of the colonists, and that the repeal of them is essentially 
necessary in order to restore harmony between Great Britain and the Ameri- 
can colonies, viz. : 

The several acts of 4 George III., chapter 15 and chapter 34; 5 George III., 
chapter 25; G George III., chapter 52; 7 George III., chapter 41 and chapter i6: 
8 George III., chapter 22, which impose duties for the purpose of raising a 
revenue in America, extend the power of the admiralty courts beyond their 
ancient limits, deprive the American subject of trial by jury, authorize the 
judges' certificates to indemnify the prosecutor from damages that he might 
otherwise be liable to, requiring oppressive security from a claimant of ships 
and goods seized before he shall be allowed to defend his property, are sub- 
versive of American rights. 

Also 12 George III., chapter 24, entitled an " Act for the better securing hi? 
majesty's dockyards, magazines, ships, ammunition, and stores," which de- 
clares a new offence in America, and deprives the American subject of a con- 
stitutional trial by jury of the vicinage, by authorizing the trial of any persons 
charged with the committing of any offence described in the said act, out of 
the realm, to be indicted and tried for the same in any shire or county within 
the realm. 

Also the three acts passed in the last session of parliament, for stopping the 
port and blocking up the harbor of Boston, for altering the charter and gov- 
ernment of Massachusetts Bay, and that which is entitled an " Act for the 
better administration of justice, " etc. 

Also the act, passed in the same session, for establishing the Roman Catho- 
lic religion in the province of Quebec, abolishing the equitable system of Eng- 
lish laws, and erecting a tyranny there, to the great danger (from so total a 
dissimilarity of religion, law, and government) of the neighboring British colo- 
nies, by the assistance of whose blood and treasure the said country was con- 
quered from France. 

Also the act, passed in the same session, for the better providing suitable 
quarters for officers and soldiers in his majesty's service in North America. 

Also, that the keeping a standing army in several of these colonies, in time 
of peace, without tlie consent of the legislature of that colony in which such 
army is kept, is against law. 

To these grievous acts and measures Americans cannot submit, but in hopes 
their fellow subjects in Great Britain will, on a revision of them, restore us to 
that state in which both countries found happiness and prosperity, we have, 
for the present, only resolved to pursue the following peaceable measures : 

1. To enter into a non-importation, non-consumption, and non-exportation 
agreement or association.

2. To prepare an address to the people of Great Britain, and a memorial to 
the inhabitants of British America. 

3. To prepare a loyal address to his majesty, agreeable to resolutions already- 
entered into. 

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 

In Congress, July 4, 1776. 

By the Representatives of the United States in Congress Assembled. 






AVhen, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to 
dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to 
assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which 
the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the 
opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which im- 
pel them to the separation. 

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal ; that 
they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights ; that among 
these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these 
rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from 
the consent of the governed ; that whenever any form of government becomes 
destructive of these ends it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, 
and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles 
and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to 
effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that govern- 
ments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes ; 
and, accordingly, all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed 
to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the 
forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and 
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce 
them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off 
such government and to provide new guards for their future security. Such 
has been the patient sufferance of these colonies, and such is now the neces- 
sity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The 
history of the present king of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries 
and usurpations, all having, in direct object, the establishment of an absolute 
tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid 
world : 

He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary for the 
public good. 

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing im_ 
portance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be ob_ 
tained; and, when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts 
of people unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in

DECLARATION OK INDEPENDENCE. 



23 



; 



the legislature ; a right inestimable to them and f onnidable to t}Tants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, 
and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of 
fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing, with manly 
firmness, his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused, for a long time after such dissolutions, to cause others to be 
elected ; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have re- 
turned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining, in the 
mean time, exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without and con- 
vulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states ; for that pur- 
pose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners, refusing to pass 
others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new 
appropriations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to 
laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their of- 
fices and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers 
to harass our people and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without the con- 
sent of our legislatures. 

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the 
civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to "our 
constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts- 
of pretended legislation, — 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us : 

For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders 
which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states : 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world : 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent : 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offences : 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, 
establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries, 
so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the 
same absolute rule into these colonics : 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and alter- 
ing, f undamently, the forms of our governments : 

For suspending our own legislatures and declaring themselves invested 
with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection, 
and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and de- 
stroyed the lives of our people. 

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to com- 
plete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny already begun with circum" 
stances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages 
and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow citizens, taken captive on the high seas, to 
bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends 
and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to 
bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers the merciless Indian savages, whose 
known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and 
conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the 
most humble terms ; our repeated petitions have been answered only by re- 
peated injury. A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which 
may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have 
warned them from time to time of attempts made by their legislature to ex- 
tend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the 
circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to 
their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties 
of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably 
interrupt our connections and correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to 
the voice of justice and consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the 
necessity which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the resi 
of mankind, enemies in war, in peace, friends. 

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in 
general congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for 
the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the 
good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare that these united 
colonies are, anil of right ought to be, free and independent states; that they 
are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political con- 
nection between them and the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be, 
totally dissolved ; and that as free and independent states, they have full power 
to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do 
.all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And, for 
the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of 
Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, 
and our sacred honor. 

Signed by order and in behalf of congress.

A convention was held at Charlotte, Mecklenburgh county, North Carolina, 
May 20, 1775, which announcer! a declaration of independence severin r tha 
people, represented by the convention, from their allegiance to the crown of 
Great Britain. Other accounts give May 31 as the date on which the conven- 
tion was held. 

It was not until the early part of the year 1776 that the idea of independence 
was seriously entertained throughout the colonies. In congress, Friday, June 
7, 1770, Richard Henry Lee moved that " these united colonies are, and of right 
ought to be, free and independent states .... and that a plan of confedera- 
tion lie prepared and transmitted to the respective colonies for their consider- 
ation and approval." This was adopted June 11. The committee to prepare 
the declaration of independence were: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Ben- 
jamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert B. Livingston. They reported 
June 2S, and the declaration was adopted unanimously July 4, 1776. 

(While the Declaration of Independence was under consideration in the con- 
tinental congress, and before it was finally agreed upon, measures were taken 
for the establishment of a constitutional form of government; and on the 11th 
of June, 1776, it was " Itesolved, that a committee be appointed to propose and 
digest t' e form of a confederation to be entered into between the colonies," 
which committee was appointed the next day, June 12th, and consisted of a 
member from each colony, namely : Mr. Bartlett, Mr. Adams, Mr. Hopkins, 
Mr. Sherman, Mr. Livingston, Mr. Dickinson, Mr. McKean, Mr. Stone, Mr. 
Nelson, Mr. Hewes, Mr. Rutledge and Mr. Gwinnett. 

On the 12th of July, 1776, the committee reported a draft of the articles of 
confederation, which was printed for the use of the members under the strict- 
est injunctions of secrecy. 

This report underwent a thorough discussion in congress from time to time 
until the 15th of November, 1777, on which day " Articles ok Confederation 
and Perpetual Union " were finally agreed to in form, and they were 
directed to be proposed to the legislatures of all the United States, and if ap- 
proved by them they were advised to authorize their delegates to ratify the 
same in the congress of the L^niied States, and in that event they were to be- 
come conclusive. On the 17th of November, 1777, the Congress agreed upon 
the form of a circular letter to accompany the articles of confederation, which 
concluded with a recommendation to each of the several legislatures "ro invest

its delerjatcs with competent powers, ultimately, and in the name and behalf of 
the state, to subscribe articles of confederation and perpetual union of the 
United States, and to attend congress for that purpose on or befoie the 10th 
clay of March next." This letter was signed by the president of congress, and 
sent with a copy of the articles to each state legislature. 

On the 20th of June, 1778, congress agreed upon the form of a ratification 
of the articles of confederation, and directed a copy of the articles and the 
ratification to be engrossed on parchment; which, on the flth of July, 1778, 
having been examined and the blanks filled, was signed by the delega.es of 
New Hampshire, Massachusetts Hay, Rhode Island and the Providence Plan- 
tations, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and South Carolina. 

Congress then directed that a circular letter be addressed to the states 
whose delegates were not present, or, being present, conceived they were not 
authorized to sign the ratification, informing them how many and what states 
had ratified the articles of confederation, anil desiring them with all con- 
venient dispatch to authorize their delegates to ratify the same. 

Of these states North Carolina ratified on the 21st and Georgia on the 24th of 
July, 1778; New Jersey on the 2f;t.h of November following; Delaware on the 
5th of May, 177'J ; Maryland on the 1st of March, 1781 ; and on the 2d of March, 
1781, congress assembled under the new form of government.)

arise between two or more states concerning boundary, jurisdiction, or any 
other cause whatever, which authority shall always be exercised in the

be commissioners or judges to hear and finally determine the controversy, 
so always as a major part of the judges who shall hear the cause shall agree 
in the determination; and if either party shall neglect to attend at the day

the court to be appointed in the manner before prescribed shall t>e final and 
conclusive ; and if any of the parties shall refuse to submit to the authority 
of such court, or to appear and defend their claim or cause, the court shall, 
nevertheless, proceed to pronounce sentence or judgment, which shall in 
like manner be final and decisive, the judgment or sentence and other pro- 
ceedings being in either case transmitted to congress, and lodged among 
the acts of congress for the security of the parties concerned; provided, 
that every commissioner, before he sits in judgment, shall take an oath, to be 
administered by one of the judges of the supreme or superior court of the 
state where the cause shall be tried, " well and truly to hear and determine 
the matter in question, according to the best of his judgment, without fa- 
vor, affection, or hope of reward " ; provided, also, that no state shall be de- 
prived of territory for the benefit of the United States. 

All controversies concerning the private right of soil claimed under differ-

smaller number than its quota, and that any other state should raise a greater 
number of men than the quota thereof, such extra number shall be raised, 
officered, clothed, armed, and equipped in the same manner as the quota of 
such state, unless the legislature of such state shall judge that stich extra 
number cannot be safely spared out of the same, in which case they shall raise, 
officer, clothe, arm. and equip as many of such extra number as they judge can 
be safely spared. And the officers and men so clothed, armed, and equipped, 
shall march to the place appointed and within the time agreed on by the 
United States, in congress assembled.

ing from day to day, be determined, unless by the votes of a majority of the 
United States, in Congress assembled. 

The congress of the United States shall have power to adjourn to any time 
within the year, and to any place within the United States, so that no period of 
adjournment be for a longer duration than the space of six months, and shall 
publish a journal of their proceedings monthly, except such parts thereof

confederation, the voice of nine states in the congress of the United States 
assembled is requisite. 

ABT. XI. Canada acceding to this confederation, and joining in the

Art. XII. All bills of credit emitted, moneys borrowed, and debts con- 
tracted by or under the authority of congress, before the assembling of the 
United States, in pursuance of the present confederation, shall be deemed and 
considered as a charge against the United States, for payment and satisfaction 
whereof the said United States and the public faith are hereby solemnly ,. '. 
pledged. 

Art. XUI. Every state shall abide by the determinations of the United 
States, in congress assembled, on all questions which by this confederation 
are submitted to them. And the articles of this confederation shall be invio-

alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them, unless such alteration 
be agreed to in a congress of the United States, and be afterwards confirmed 
by the legislatures of every state; and 

Whereas, it hath pleased the Great Governor of the world to incline 
the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in congress, to approve 
of and to authorize us to ratify the said articles of confederation and per- 
petual union, know ye that we, the undersigned delegates, by virtue of the 
power and authority to us given for that purpose, do by these presents, in the 
name and in behalf of our respective constituents, fully and entirely ratify 
and confirm each and every of the said articles of confederation and perpetual 
union, and all and singular the matters and things therein contained. 

And we do further solemnly plight and engage the faith of our respective 
constituents, that they shall abide by the determinations of the United States, 
In congress assembled, on all questions which by the said confederation are 
submitted to them, and that the articles thereof shall be inviolably observed 
by the states we respectively represent, and that the union shall be perpetual. 

In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands in congress. Done at

The seat of government was established first at Philadelphia, Penn., com- 
mencing Sept. 5, 1774, and May 10, 1775; at Baltimore, Md., Dec. 20, 177G; at 
Philadelphia, Perm., March 4, 1777; at Lancaster, Penn., Sept. 27, 1777; at 
York, Penn., Sept. SO, 1777; at Philadelphia, Penn., July 2, 1778; at Princeton, 
N. J., June 30, 1783: at Annapolis, Md., Nov. 26, 1783; at Trenton, N. J., Nov. 
1, 1784; and at New York City, Jan. 11, 1785. 

On the 4th of March, 1789, the present constitution, which had been adopted 
by a convention and ratified by the requisite number of states, went into 
operation. The several state legislatures ratified this instrument at the fol- 
lowing dates : 

Delaware, Dec. 7, 1787; Pennsylvania, Dec. 12, 1787; New Jersey, Dec. 18, 
1787; Georgia, Jan. 2, 1788; Connecticut, Jan. 9,1788; Massachusetts, Feb. 6, 
1788; Maryland, April 28, 1788 ; South Carolina, May 23, 1788; New Hampshire, 
June 21,1788; Virginia, June 26, 1788; New York, July 26,1788; North Caro- 
lina, Nov. 21, 1789; Rhode Island, May 29, 1790. 

The privilege of becoming members of the union by ratifying the constitu- 
tion was confined to those states that were parties to the confederation by 
which the constitution had been framed. The constitution was adopted by 
the convention, September 17, 1787. It required that nine states should ratify 
it before its provisions could go into effect. Congress, on the 13th of Sep- 
tember, 1788, determined that as a sufficient number of the states had rati- 
fied it — eleven having done so — it should become operative on the first 
Wednesday (the 4th) of March, 1789. North Carolina and Rhode Island had not 
yet sanctioned it ; but as soon as they acceded to its provisions, they were 
admitted to its privileges.

CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. 



47 



DATE OF RATIFICATION. 

The constitution was adopted by the convention, on the 17th of September, 
17S7, appointed in pursuance of the resolution of the congress of the confeder- 
ation of the 21st of February, 1787, and ratified by the conventions of the 
several states, as follows : 

Delaware, December 7, 1787, unanimously. 

Pennsylvania, December 12, 1787, by a vote of 40 to 23. 

New Jersey, December 18, 1787, unanimously. 

Georgia, January 2, 1788, unanimously. 

Connecticut, January 9, 1788, by a vote of 128 to 40. 

Massachusetts, February 6, 1788, by a vote of 187 to 108. 

Maryland, April 28, 1788, by a vote of 63 to 12. 

South Carolina, May 23, 1788, by a vote of 149 to 73. 

New Hampshire, June 21, 1788, by a vote of 57 to 47. 

■Virginia, June 25, 1788, by a vote of 89 to 79. 

New York, July 20, 1788, by a vo'te of 30 to 25. 

North Carolina, November 21, 1789, by a vote of 193 to 75. 

Rhode Island, May 29, 1790, by a majority of 2. 

Vermont, January 10, 1791, by a vote of 105 to 4. 
Declared ratified by resolution of the old congress, September 13, 1788. 



The adoption of the constitution was opposed by many who believed that 
the extensive powers granted by it to congress and the executive would be 
dangerous to the liberties of the people. It was, however, finally adopted, 
chiefly through the .exertions and writings of James Madison, John Jay, and 
Alexander Hamilton. Virginia ratified the constitution with the declaration 
that she was at liberty to withdraw from the union whenever its powers were 
used for oppression ; and New York, after Hamilton had declared that no 
state should ever be coerced by an armed force. There were two great par- 
ties, the federalists, in favor of a strong, centralized government, and the 
anti-federalists, supporters of state's rights. Washington and Adams, feder- 
alist leaders, were elected, and the government was organized with Thomas 
Jefferson, secretary of state; Alexander Hamilton, secretary of the treasury; 
Henry Knox, secretary of war; and John Jay, chief justice of the supreme 
court.

From the organization of the senate, March 4, 1789, until the December ses- 
sion in 1795, the sessions were with closed doors, except during the discussion 
in February, 1795, of the right of Albert Gallatin to a seat, when it was insisted 
that he was an alien and ineligible. When considering treaties and nomina- 
tions the sessions are with closed doors. 

The vice-president is president c.f the senate: during his absence, or while 
exercising the office of president, the president pro tempore presides.

HISTORICAL NOTES. 



1. Discovery of America by Northmen. Herjulf was one of those who 
accompanied Eric to Greenland. Bjarni, son of Herjulf, on his return from a 
trading voyage to Norway in 985, hearing that his father had gone to Green- 
land, determined to join him there, instead of proceeding to Ireland. By 
contrary winds he was driven out of his course, and he saw an unknown coun- 
try, the shores of New England. He did not land, but the narrative of his 
voyage, on his arrival in Greenland, caused future expeditions in that direc- 
tion. In the year 1000 an expedition sailed under Leif, son of Eric, and landed 
in a country which was named Helluland (from Hella, a flat stone) now New- 
foundland. Again they set sail, reached a land where they went ashore and 
named Markland, that is. Woodland, now Nova Scotia. Again they put to sea, 
with the wind northeast, and landed next on an island where dew was on the 
grass and very sweet to the taste: this is supposed to have been the island 
now known as Nantucket. They again embarked and anchored in a bay and 
wintered at the mouth of a river, supposed to have been, as now known, 
Mount Hope Bay and Fall River, Mass. The country was named Vinland 
from the abundance of grapes found in the vicinity. The Northman called 
the country somewhere south of Vinland the AVhite Man's Land, or Great 
Ireland, and believed that it was occupied by Irish. A tradition, with a slight 
claim to fact, states that the Irish, as early as the Northmen, visited and 
colonized the southern part of North America, now known as North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Accounts are given of expeditions to 
Great Ireland, previous to, and as late as 1347. • 

2. Columbus received a patent from Ferdinand and Isabella April 17, 1402 ; 
the following were its terms : 

First: Their highnesses, as sovereigns of the ocean, constitute Don Christo- 
pher Columbus their admiral in all those islands and continents that by his 
industry shall be discovered or conquered in the said ocean during his life, 
and after bis death to his heirs and successsrs, one by one, forever, with all 
the pre-eminences and prerogatives to that office pertaining; and in the same 
manner as Don Alonzo Henriquez, their great admiral of Castile, and his pre- 
decessors in said office had enjoyed the same with their districts. 

Item: Their highnesses appoint the said Don Christopher Columbus their

HISTORICAL ITEMS 



viceroy and governor-general of all the islands and continent* which i as has 
been said} he shall discover or conquer in the said ocean, and that he choose 
three persons for the government of each of them, for each office: and that 
their highnesses take and make choice of one ol them, as shall be most for 
their service, and so the lands will be the better governed which our Lord 
shall permit him to discover, or conquer, for the service of their highnesses. 

Item: That all and whatsoever commodities, whether pearls, precious 
stones, gold, silver, spice, or other thing whatsoever: or merchandise of any 
kind, name, or manner whatever they may be. that shall be bought, exchanged, 
found, won, or had within the limits of the said admiralship, their highnesses 
from this time grant to the said Don Christopher: and it is their will that he 
have and enjoy the tenth part of it for himself, deducting the charges that 
shall be made toward the same, so that of what shall remain clear and free 
he have and take the tenth part for himself, and dispose of it at his own will, 
the other nine parts remaining for their majesties. 

Item : In case that on account of the said merchandise which he shall 
bring from the said islands, or lands, which shall (as has been saidi be dis- 
covered, or conquered, or of those that shall be taken in exchange of them of 
other merchants, any lawsuit should happen to arise in the place where the 
said commerce and trade shall be made and carried on, if by reason of his said 
office of admiral it shall belong to him to take cognizance of such controversy. . 
it may please their highnesses that he or his deputy, and no other judge, 
shall try the said cause, if it appertains to the said office of admiral as the 
same has been enjoyed by the admiral Don AJonzo Henriquez, or his predeces- 
sors in their districts, and according to justice. 

Item : That all ships which shall be fined out for the said trade and com- 
merce, whensoever and as often as they shall be fitted, shall be liable to the 
said Don Christopher Columbus, if he shall think fit to lay out the eighth part 
of what shall be expended in fitting them out, and that he accordingly have 
and receive the eighth part of the profits of such ships. 

3. Grant of America to Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain was made by a 
bull of Pope Alexander VI, May 3, 14Ki. By bulls of May 3 and September 25, 
Pope Alexander VI established a line of demarkation dividing the heathen 
■world between Spain and Portugal. The imaginary line was from pole to pole 
P'o miles west of the Azores. He gave unlimited sway to the Portuguese over 
all countries they might discover east of this line, and to the Spaniards all 
discoveries they might make west thereof. This was modified by a capitula- 
tion, June 7, 1404, between the pope, Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, and 
John II, of Portugal. At the time of these grants the newly discovered world 
was supposed to be the eastern coast of India. 

4. Cabot s Patents.— A patent was granted by Henry VII. of England, March 
5, 1496, to John Cabot and his three sons, Lewis, Sebastian, and Sanctius, their 
heirs or deputies, to " sail to all parts, countries, and seas of the east, of the 
•west, and of the north, under our banners and ensigns, with five ships of what 
burthen and quantity soever they be, and so many mariners or men as they

will have with them in the said ships, upon their own proper costs and charges 
to seek out, discover, and find whatsoever isles, countries, regions, or provinces 
of the heathen and infidels, whatsoever they be, and in what part of the world 
soever they be, which before this time have been unknown to all Christians," 
to take possession in the name of the king of England, and as his vassals to 
conquer, possess, and occupy; enjoying for themselves, their heirs and assigns 
forever, the sole right of trading thither, paying the king in lieu of all customs 
and impositions, a fifth of all net profits. 

A second patent was granted, February 3, 1498, by which John Kabotto was 
authorized to impress six English ships, " and them convey and lede to the 
Londe and Isles of late founde by the said John in oure name and by our com- 
mandemente." 

5. Gilbert's Ch ap.ter. — A charter was granted by Queen Elizabeth to Sir 
Humphrey Gilbert, June 11, 1578. which empowered him for the following six 
years to discover •• such remote heathen and barbarous lands, not actually pos- 
sessed by any Christian prince or people," and conferred on him the rights of 
jurisdiction and exclusive trade over a circuit of 600 miles, to be described 
from any spot as a center. At this time Florida was regarded by the English 
as the northern boundary of Spanish possessions, and " that the countreys lying 
north of Florida God hath reserved the same to be reduced into Christian ci- 
vility by the English nation." 

In March, 1584, Walter Raleigh obtained the patent of Sir Humphrey Gilbert, 
with enlarged powers and privileges. 

6. Virginia Colt antes. — James I. granted letters patent April 10, 1606, to 
Sir George Somers, Richard Hakluyt, Edward Maria Wingtield, and others 
who should be joined with them, which granted to them all the territory on 
the Atlantic coast of North America between 34 degrees and 45 degrees north 
latitude, and the islands within 100 miles. Two companies were formed. The 
first or southern colony of Virginia, known as the London Company, its 
council being chietly citizens of London, had jurisdiction from Cape Fear 
to the eastern end of Long Island, from 34 degrees to 41 degrees latitude. 
The second or northern colony of Virginia, known as the Plymouth Com- 
pany, its council having been appointed from Plymouth, England, and vicinity, 
had jurisdiction from about the latitude of Delaware Bay to Halifax, Nova 
Scotia, or from 38 degrees to 45 degrees north latitude. From 38 degrees to 
41 degrees the country was under the jurisdiction of both companies, but by 
the terms of the charter neither company was to begin a settlement within 100 
miles of any spot previously occupied by the other. 

7. Nativity of Eakly Voyagers. — Some were not natives of the country 
of their service. Christopher Columbus was a native of Cogerio, near Genoa, 
Italy, born about 1435; he set out on a voyage of discovery in the service of 
Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, August 3, 1432. John Cabot's birthplace is a 
matter of doubt. If not by birth a citizen of Venice, he was by adoption, deni- 
zation having been granted him in Venice March 28, 1476, after a residence of 
15 years. He sailed in the service of England, May, 1497. Amerigo Vespucci,

1400; in the service of Portugal, from May 10,1301; and returned to the service 
of Spain in 1506. Fernando Magellan, horn at Alemtejo, Portugal, in 1170. In 
the service of Spain he commanded an expedition which sailed September 
20, 1510, which completed the circumnavigation of the globe September is, 1522. 
Jean Verrazani, a native of Florence, Italy, entered the service of France Jan- 
uary 17. 1524. Cabrillo, a native of Portugal, in the Spanish service, explored 
the coast of California. Henry Hudson, a rative of England, entered the ser- 
vice of the Dutch East India Company, in 1000, and discovered the site of Xe>v 
York. Vitus Behring, a Dane by birth, entered the service of Russia in 172S. 
Virginia Company. — A new charter was granted by James I. to the first 









or southern colony under the supervision of the •' London Company," May 23, 
1G00. The boundaries of the laud thus granted were from 200 miles north to 
the same distance south of Old Point Comfort, extending from the Atlantic to 
the Pacific Ocean, and the ir-lands within 100 miles of both coasts. 

9. Sew Netherlands. — The term was first officially applied to the region 
in America '• between New France and Virginia, being the sea coasts between 
42 degrees and 45 degrees." the monopoly of trade of which was granted by the 
States General October 11, 1014, to a company in Amsterdam, for three years 
from January 1, 1615. 

10. The Great Patent granted by James I., November 3, 1620, to the Ply- 
mouth Company, formerly known as the second or northern colony of Vir- 
ginia, included territory from 40 to 48 degrees latitude. 

11. Compact of the Pilgrims signed on board of the Mayjloicer in Cape 
Cod (Provincetowri) harbor, before landing: 

" In ye name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten, the loyall 
subjects of our dread soveraigne Lord, King James, by ye grace of God, of

12. Massachusetts Bay. — A company was formed at Dorchester. England, 
in 1G23, the Rev. John White, minister of that place, the principal mover. A 
colony attempted at Cape Ann was unsuccessful. A patent was procured from 
the Plymouth Company, March 19, 162.S, Sir Henry Roswell, Sir John Young, 
Thomas Southcote, John Humphrey, John Endicott, and Simon Whireomb, pa- 
tentees, granting that tract of country from three miles south of the Charles 
River, to three miles north of the Merrimac, and from the Atlantic to the Pa- 
cific Ocean. 

13. Order of Patroons was founded by the Charter of Privileges and Ex- 
emptions issued by the Dutch West India Company's College of Nineteen, 
June 7, 1629. Any member of that company who should purchase of the In- 
dians and found, in any part of New Netherlands except Manhattan and Fort 
Orange, a colony of 00 persons over 15 years of age. should be the feudal lord 
or patroon of the territory. His rule in all respects was to be as absolute as 
any baron of the Middle Ages. 

14. Plymouth Charter was granted to William Bradford and his associates 
by the Plymouth Company, January 13, 1030, for territory with its eastern 
boundary the Atlantic Ocean, and from Cohasset river to Narrugansett river; 
its western boundary a line drawn from the mouths of these rivers and meet- 
ing at the uttermost limits of a country called Pocanoket (or Mount Hope, four 
miles from Troy, near Fall River, Mass.), in the southeastern part of Massachu- 
setts. This patent also approved the grant on the Kennebec river, defining it 
to be fifteen miles on each bank thereof. 

15. Warwick's Grant. — A grant of lands, a part of Connecticut, was made 
to the Earl of Warwick in 1030. This was transferred to Lord Saybrooke and 
others March 19, 1631, and defined as that tract of New England extending 
westward from Narragansett river, one hundred and twenty miles along the 
coast, west to the Pacific Ocean. 

16. United Colonies of New England, formed by convention May 19, 
1G43, and embracing Massachusetts, New Plymouth, Connecticut and New- 
Haven. The confederation was formed principally for defence against the In- 
dians, and they entered " into a firm and perpetual league of friendship and 
amity, for offence and defence, mutual advice and succor upon all just occa- 
sions, both for preserving and propagating the truth and liberties of the 
gospel, and for their own mutual safety and welfare." 

17. Habtford Boundary Treaty between New Netherlands and New- 
England colonies in 1650. The boundary line on Long Island was fixed to run.

belong to the English and west of it to the Dutch. On the land north of the 
Sound the dividing line was to extend from the west side of Greenwich Bay 
about four miles from Stamford, thence inland twenty miles, not to come 
within ten miles of the Hudson, and the Dutch were not to build within six 
miles of the line. 

18. Navigation- Acts, 1660 axd 1663. — That of 1660 ordained that no com. 
modities should be imported into any British settlement in Asia, Africa, or 
America, or exported from thence, but in vessels built in England or her colo- 
nial plantations and navigated by crews of which the masters and three 
fourths of the mariners should be English subjects, under the penalty of for 
feiture of ship and cargo; that none but natural born subjects of the English 
crown, or persons legally naturalized, should exercise the occupation of mer- 
chant, or factor, in any English colonial settlement, under the penalty of for- 
feiture of goods and chattels; that no sugar, tobacco, cotton, wool, indigo, 
ginger, or woods used in dyeing, produced or manufactured in the colonies, 
should be shipped from them to any other country than England; and to se- 
cure the observance of this regulation, ship owners were required at the port 
of lading to give bonds with surety for sums apportioned to the tonnage 
of their vessels. 

That of 1663 in addition prohibited the importation of European commodi. 
ties into the colonies, except in vessels laden in England and navigated and 
manned in conformity with the requisitions of the original statute. 

10. Carolina Charter, granted March 24, 1663, by Charles II. to the Eavl of 
Clarendon ; George Monk, the Duke of Albemarle ; Earl of Craven ; Lord 
Berkeley; Lord Ashley; Sir George Carteret; Sir John Colleton; and Sir Wil- 
liam Berkeley. The grant extended from 30 degrees to 36 degrees north lati- 
tude, or from St. John's river in Florida to nearly the present southern line of 
Virginia and from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. 

A second charter was granted June 30, 1665, which extended the boundaries 
a degree southward and half a degree northward. The territory then covered 
by the grants extended from 20 degrees to 'M\'o degrees north latitude, and from 
the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean; or the present states of North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Georgia, and the northern part of Florida, and all extending 
westward thereof to the Pacific Ocean. 

20. Charter of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, granted July 
8, 1663, by Charles II., confirmed the rights of former charters and included 
with other provisions that '• no person within the said colony, at any time 
hereafter, shall be any wise molested, punished, disquieted or called in ques" 
tion for any differences in opinion in matters of religion that do not actually 
disturb the civil peace of our said colony; but that all and every person and 
persons may from time to time, and at all times hereafter, freely and fully have 
and enjoy his and their own judgments and consciences in matters of religious 
concernments throughout the tract of land hereinafter mentioned, they behav- 
ing themselves peaceably and quietly, and not using this liberty to licentious- 
ness and profaneness, nor to the injury or outward disturbance of others.''

21. Charter of Mew York was granted by Charles II. to his l>rother. the 
Duke of York, March 12, 1664, and included a portion of the Province of Maine. 
That for New York was denned as the country from the east side of the Con- 
necticut river to the east side of Delaware Bay, and included Martha's Yine- 
yard, Nantucket, all of Long Island, and all the territory of New Neth- 
erlands. 

A new charter was granted June 20, 1674, that of 1664 having been extin- 
guished by conquest by a foreign power in 1673, and its cession to the crown by 
treaty of Westminster in 1674. 

22. Charter of New Jersey was g-antetl by the Duke of York to Lord 
Berkeley and Sir George Carteret June 24, 1664. The territory defined as this 
grant extended from the Hudson to the Delaware, and from latitude 41-i 
degrees to Cape May. 

23. Qcintipartite Deed. — The preceding note explains that New Jersey- 
was granted by the Duke of York. His title to New York was extinguished 
by Dutch conquest. Lord Berkeley transferred his undivided half, March IS, 
1674, to John Fenwicke in trust for Edward Byllinge. A new grant was made 
by the duke August 8, 1674, to Sir George Carteret, of the northeastern part of 
New Jersey. In time a quarrel sprang up between Fenwicke and Byllinge re- 
garding their respective rights. Both were Quakers, and the dispute was 
referred to William Penn, whose decision was satisfactory to both. Fenwicke 
set sail for America, but Byllinge, greatly in debt, was obliged to transfer a 
greater portion of his rights to his creditors, which were transferred to Penn, 
Laurie, and Lucas. This made matters complicated, and a division became 
necessary. On the 1st of July, 1676, a dead was signed by Sir George Carteret 
on the one side, and William Penn, Gawen Laurie, Nicholas Lucas, and Edward 
Byllinge on the other, which divided New Jersey into two portions. 

East New Jersey included all northeast of a line drawn from Little Egg 
Harbor to a point on the most northern branch of the Delaware river at latitude 
41% degrees. This became the portion of Sir George Carteret. 

West New Jersey included the territory originally granted by the duke 
southwest of the above described line, and was by the deed recognized as the 
purchase of the Quaker (Friend) associates. 

24. Charter of Pennsylvania, granted to William Penn, his heirs and 
assigns, March 4, 1681, by Charles II. The grant was made' in consideration of 
two beaver skins annually, and a fifth part of all the gold and silver that 
might be mined. The territory was defined as including three degrees of 
latitude, and five of longitude; bounded on the east by the river Delaware ; 
extending westward five degrees of longitude ; stretching to the north from 
twelve miles northward of Newcastle, Del., to 43 degrees latitude; limited on 
the south by a circle of twelve miles drawn around Newcastle to the begin- 
ning of 40 degrees latitude. 

Historical Facts connected with the formation of the original Union and 
the admission of new states.— On Monday, September 5, 1774, a number of men

were assembled at Carpenter's Hall, Philadelphia, who had been chosen by 
the several colonies in what now constitutes the United States, to hold a con- 
gress for the purpose of discussing: certain grievances imputed to the mother 
country. This congress resolved that each colony should have one vote only. 
On Tuesday, July 2, 177C. the congress resolved : •• That these united colonies 
are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states," etc. ; and on Thurs- 
day, July 4, the whole declaration of independence having been agreed upon 
was publicly read to the people. On September 9 it was resolved that the 
words "United Colonies" should no longer be used, and that "United States" 
should thenceforward be the style and title of the union. On Saturday, No- 
vember 15, 1777, "Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union of the United 
States of America" were agreed to by the state delegates, subject to the rati- 
fication of the several state legislatures. Eight of t::e states ratified these 
articles July 9, 1778 ; one, July 21 ; one. July 24 ; one. November 26: one, Febru- 
ary 22, 1779; and the last one, March 1, 17*1. 

25. Charter of Georoia, granted by George H, June 9, 1732, to twenty- 
one noblemen and gentlemen; amoLg whom were Anthony, Earl of Shaftes- 
bury; John, Lord Percival ; John. Lord TjTConnel; James, Lord Limerick; 
George, Lord Carpenter ; James Edward Oglethorpe, and Stepem Hales ; the 
grant included territory formerly in the grant of Carolina, and of the present 
state of Georgia from the Savannah to the Altamaha river. 

26. Bounty for Scalps.— During the French and Indian war. in 1754, the 
French offered a bounty for British scalps. In the same year a bounty of £100 
was offered by the colonies for Indian scalps. In 1755 Massachusetts granted 
a bounty of £3 to every soldier who would enlist and And his own gun ; also a 
bounty of £40 for every scalp of a male over 12 years old, and £20 for every 
woman's and child's scalp. In July, 1764. John Penn, the grandson of "William 
Penn, and governor of Pennsylvania, proclaimed that for every male Indian 
above the age of ten who was captured, a bounty of $150 should be paid ; for 
every male killed and scalped, §134; for every one thus served nnder ten, §130; 
for every female killed and scalped, §30. 

27. Regulators. — The name of an association formed in North Carolina, 
April 4, 1707. They entered into a compact to pay no taxes till all exorbitant 
fees were abolished and official embezzlement punished and prevented. The 
agitation was increased from time to time by the levying of taxes for unneces- 
sary purposes, and the acts of officials. In 1771 they assembled to the number 
of two thousand and declared their determination to revolutionize the govern- 
ment. They were defeated, May Hi, 1771, and in June of that year six were 
executed for treason. 

28. Green Mountain Boys.— By the grant of Charles H. to his brother 
James, the Duke of York, in the year 1664, the tract called Xew York was 
defined as bounded on the east by the Connecticut river; while the charters of 
Massachusetts and Connecticut gave those provinces an extent; westward to 
the Pacific ocean. When toward the middle of the eighteenth cefflfenry scttle-

meats began to be made westward of tbe Connecticut river disputes arose, 
and the line between Connecticut and New York was finally drawn, by mutual 
consent, twenty miles east of the Hudson. Massachusetts claimed a continua- 
tion of this line as her western boundary; but New York denied tha claim. 
Governor Fletcher in 10% made grants in the present state of Vermont. New 
Hampshire, lying north, was not disturbed by these disputes. "When Kenning 
"Wentworth was made governor of New Hampshire he was authorized to issue 
patents for unimproved lauds. In 1749 applications were made for grants 
beyond the Green mountains. He presumed that New Hampshire extended 
as far west as Connecticut, and gave a patent for a township six miles square, 
having its western line twenty miles east of the Hudson ; and in his honor it 
was named Bennington. The governor and council of New York remonstrated 
against the grant, yet Wentworth continued to issue patents, so that in 1754, 
fourteen townships were laid out, and settlements commenced. These settle- 
ments were distinguished as "The New Hampshire grants," and in time 
extended and were subsequently called Vermont. In 1703, at the close of the 
war, 138 townships were surveyed. The controversy between New York and 
the grants became so violent that military organizations were formed in Ver- 
mont to resist the civil power of New York, and in 1772 its members were 
called the Green Mountain Boys. Having paid for the grants to New Hamp- 
shire, they objected to pay for them a second time. In 1774 New York passed 
an order that settlers who refused to surrender should sutler death. The con- 
test continued ; the governor offered a reward of £150 for Allen and £50 for 
AVarner. A proclamation was made by the Green Mountain Boys, April 20, 
1774, in which the New York authorities were defied. The revolutionary war 
caused the contest to be discontinued. 

29. Decxakation of Independence at Charlotte, Mecklenburg county, 
North Carolina. — The elected committeemen of the county were notified to 
assemble in the court-house at Charlotte, which they accordingly did toward 
the close of May, 1775; the precise day is not known. A committee was 
appointed to prepare resolutions, which were adopted unanimously, viz.: 

AVhekeas, by an address presented to his majesty by both houses of parlia- 
ment, in February last, the American colonies are declared to be in a state of 
actual rebellion, we conceive that all laws and commissions confirmed by or 
derived from the authority of the king and parliament are annulled and 
vacated, and the former civil constitution of these colonies for the present 
wholly suspended. To provide in some degree for the exigencies of this 
.county in the present alarming period, we deem it proper and necessary, to 
pass the following resolves, viz. : 

1. That all commissions, civil and military, heretofore granted by the 
crown to be exercised in these colonies, are null and void, and the constitu- 
tion of each particular colony wholly suspended. 

2. That the provincial congress of each province, under the direction of the 
great continental congress, is invested with all legislative and executive 
powers within their respective provinces, and that no other legislative or 
executive power does or can exist at this time in any of these colonies.

3. As all former laws are now suspended in this province, and the congress 
has not yet provided others, we judge it necessary for the better preservation 
of good order, to form certain rules and regulations for the internal govern- 
ment of,this county until laws shall be provided for us by the congress. 

4. That the inhabitants of this county do meet on a certain day appointed 
by the committee, and, having formed themselves into nine companies (to wit, 
eight for the county, and one for the town), do choose a colonel and other 
military officers, who shall hold and exercise their several powers by virtue of 
the choice, and independent of the crown of Great Britain and former con- 
stitution of this province. 

5. That for the better preservation of the peace and administration of 
justice, each of these companies do choose from their own body two discreet 
freeholders, who shall be empowered, each by himself, and singly, to decide 
and determine all matters of controversy arising within said company, under 
the sum of twenty shillings, and jointly and together all controversies under 
the sum of forty shillings, yet so as their decisions may admit of appeal to the 
convention of the selectmen of the county, and also that any one of these 
men shall have power to examine and commit to confinement persons accused 
of petty larceny. 

ti. That those two selectmen thus chosen do jointly and together choose 
from the body of their particular company two persons to act as constables, 
who may assist them in the execution of their office. 

7. That upon the complaint of any persons to either of these selectmen, he 
do issue his warrant directed to the constable, commanding him to bring the 
aggressor before him to answer said complaint. 

S. That these select eighteen selectmen thus appointed do meet every third 
Thursday in January, April, July, and October, at the court-house in Char- 
lotte, to hear and determine all matters of controversy for sums exceeding 
forty shilling's, also appeals ; and in case of felony to commit the persons con- 
victed thereof to close confinement until the provincial congress shall provide 
and establish laws and modes of proceeding in all such cases. 

9. That these eighteen selectmen thus convened do choose a clerk to record 
the transactions of said convention, and that said clerk, upon the application 
of any person or persons aggrieved, do issue his warrant to any of the con- 
stables of the company to which the offender belongs, directing said constable 
to summon and warn said offender to appear before said convention at their 
next sitting, to answer the aforesaid complaint. 

10. That any person making complaint, upon oath, to the clerk or any mem- 
ber of the convention, that he has reason to suspect that anyperson or persons 
indebted to him in a sum above forty shillings intend clandestinely to with- 
drawfrom the county without paying the debt, the clerk or such member shall 
issue his warrant to the constable, commanding him to take said person or 
persons into safe custody until the next sitting of the convention. 

11. That when a debtor for a sum above forty shillings shall abscond and 
leave the county, the warrant granted as aforesaid shall extend to any goods 



-. - — ■ ■■ ■ — ■ — ™

or chattels of said debtor as may be found, and such goods or chattels be 
seized and held in custody by the constable for the space of thirty days, in 
which time, if the debtor fail to return and discharge the debt, the constable 
shall return the warrant to one of the selectmen of the company, when the 
goods are found, who shall issue orders to the constable to sell such a part of 
s id goods as shall amount to the sum due. 

That when the debt exceeds forty shillings, the return shall be made to the 
convention, who shall issue orders for sale. 

12. That all receivers and collectors of quit-rents, public and county taxes, 
do pay the same into the hands of the chairman of this committee, to be by

officers thus appointed and thus acting, on account of their obedience and 
conformity to these rules. 

16. That whatever person shall hereafter receive a commission from the 
crown, or attempt to exercise any such commission heretofore received, shall 
be deemed an enemy to his country ; and upon confirmation being made to the 
captain of the company in which he resides, the said company shall cause him 
to be apprehended and conveyed to two selectmen, who, upon proof of the fact, 
shall commit said offender to safe custody until the next sitting of the com- 
mittee, who shall deal with him as prudence may direct. 

17. That any person refusing to yield obedience to the above rules shall be 
considered equally criminal, and liable to the same punishment as the offend- 
ers aoove last mentioned. 

18. That these resolves be in full force and virtue until instructions from 
the provincial congress regulating the jurisprudence of the province shall 
provide otherwise, or the legislative body of Great Britain resign its unjust 
and arbitrary pretensions with respect to America. 

19. That the eight militia companies in this county provide themselves with 
proper arms and aeooaterments, and hold themselves in readiness to execute 
the commands and directions of the general congress of this province and 
this committee.

posit the same in such place as the committee may hereafter direct. 

Signed by order of the committee.

These resolutions were transmitted to the North Carolina delegates in the 
continental congress then in session at Philadelphia, and in August to the pro- 
vincial congress of North Carolina at Hillsborough. The movement being 
premature may have been the reason that no action in regard thereto was 
taken in either congress . 

30. Shays' Rebellion in Massachusetts in 17SG and 1787. The insurrection 
commenced before Shays became prominent ; he afterwards was chosen leader. 
The principal complaints of the insurgents were that the governor's salary 
was too high, the senate aristocratic, the lawyers extortionate, and taxes too 
heavy; the issue of paper money, and the removal of the general court to 
Boston were demanded. 

31. Berlin Decree. — The following is a copy: 
Imperial Camp, Berlin, November 21, lSOti. 

Napoleon, Emperor o/ the French and King of Italy, considering: 

1. That England does not admit the rights of nations as universally acknowl- 
edged by all civilized people; 

2. That she declares as an enemy every individual belonging to an enemy 
state, and, in consequence, makes prisoners of war not only of the crews of 
armed vessels, but those also of merchant vessels, and even the supercargoes 
of the same ; 

3. That she extends or applies to merchant vessels, to articles of commerce, 
and to the property of individuals the right of conquest, which can only be 
applied or extended to what belongs to an enemy state ; 

4. That she extends to ports not fortified, to harbors and mouths of rivers, 
the right of blockade, which, according to reason and the usages of civilized 
nations, is applicable only to strong or fortified ports ; 

5. That she declares places blockaded before which she has not a single ves- 
sel of war, although a place ought not to be considered blockaded but when it 
is so invested that no approach to it can be made without imminent hazard ; 
that she declares even places blockaded which her united forces would be in- 
capable of doing, such as entire coasts and a whole empire ; 

6. That this unequal abuse of the right of blockade has no other object than 
to interrupt the communication of different nations, and to extend the com- 
merce and industry of England upon the ruin of those of the continent; 

7. That this being the evident design of England, whoever deals on the con- 
tinent in English merchandise favors that design, and becomes an accom- 
plice. 

& That this conduct in England (worthy only of the first stages of barbar- 
ism), has benefited her to the detriment of other nations ; 

?. Tint it being right to oppose to an enemy the same arms she makes use 
of, to combat as she does when all ideas of justice and every liberal sentiment 
(the result of civilization among men) are disregarded ; 

We have resolved to enforce against England the usages which she has con- 
secrated in her maritime code. 

The present decree shall be considered the law of the empire until England

shall acknowledge that the rights of war are the same on land as at sea; that

! , cution of the present decree. NAPOLEON. 

32. British Orders in Couj»"CIL of January T, and November IT, 1807. 
These orders were of great length, and capable of different interpretations. 
All ports in Europe from which the British flag was excluded were declared 

! blockaded, and trade therewith prohibited; and the right was claimed to seize 

and search all vessels bound for such ports. The principal interpretations of 
the orders as relating to the United States were as follows : All trade directly 
from the United States to any port or country of Europe at war with Great 
Britain, or from which the British flag was excluded, was totally prohibited. 
In the general prohibition, all parts of Europe were included, with the excep- 
tion of Sardinia, and no distinction whatever was made between the domestic 
produce of the United States and that of tte colonies re-exported from 
thence. 

The trade of the United States to the colonies of all nations remained unal- 
tered by the last orders. The United States might export the produce of her 
own country, but that of no other, directly to Sweden. 





With the above exceptions, all articles, whether of domestic or colonial pro- ;vQ

duce, exported by the United States to Europe were required to be landed in 
England, from whence it was intended to permit their re-exportation under 
such regulations as might thereafter be determined. 

By these regulations it was claimed that duties were to be imposed on all 
articles so re-exported; but it was intimated that an exception would be made 
ini favor of such as were the produce of the United States, cotton excepted. 

Any vessel, the cargo of which should be accompanied with certificates of 
French consuls abroad of its origin, was declared, with the cargo, liable to 
seizure and confiscation. 

33. Milan Decree issued by Napoleon, December 17, 1807, extended and 
made more vigorous that issued at Berlin, November 21, 1806. It declared 
every vessel which should submit to be searched by British cruisers, or should 
pay any tax, duty, or license-money to the British government, or should be 
found on the high seas, or elsewhere, bound to or from any British port, de- 
nationalized and forfeit. 

34. Bayoxxe Decree issued by Napoleon, April 17, 1808, ordered the seiz- 
ure and confiscation of all United States vessels in France, or which might 
arrive. 

35. Rambouillet Decree issued by Napoleon, March 23, 1810, declared 
that " all American vessels which should enter French ports, or ports occu- 
pied by French troops, should be seized and sequestered." The immediate 
effect of this decree was the seizure and sale of 132 United States vessels. 

36. Florida. — Congress, in secret session, passed acts, January 15 and 
March 3, 1811, authorizing the president to take possession of Florida in case 
of attempted occupation by any foreign government. 

37. Dorr's Rebellion in Rhode Island, in the year 1842. Previous to No- 
vember 5, 1842, the Rhode Island government was based on the charter 
granted July 8, 1663. The elective franchise was limited to the holders of a 
certain amount of real estate, and to their eldest sons, which included about 
one third of the citizens. Thomas Wilson Dorr, during his membership of 
the assembly, advocated the adoption of a liberal constitution. His party was 
known as the suffrage party, the opposing, as the charter party. The suffrage 
party, in 1841, chose Dorr governor; and on May 3, 1842, they endeavored to es- 
tablish their government at Providence. After their defeat at Chepachet, 
Dorr fled to Connecticut, and a reward of 84,000 was offered for his apprehen- 
sion. He returned, was tried for treason, convicted, and sentenced to state's 
prison for life. In 1847 he was pardoned, and in 1853 the legislature restored 
all his civil rights. A constitution was adopted by the state November 5, 
1842. 

38. Ostend Manifesto.— President Pierce requested Pierre Soute, minis- 
ter to Spain, James Buchanan, minister to Great Britain, and John Y. Mason, 
minister to France, to hold a conference regarding Cuba. Accordingly they 
met at Ostend, Belgium, and afterward adjourned to Aix-la-Chapelle. A 
memorandum was drawn up, generally designated the Ostend Manifesto,

which was issued October 21, 1S54. Therein they asserted the great importance 
of Cuba to the United States; that great advantages would result to Spain 
from its sale; that Spain would meet wi:h great difficulties in attempts to 
control it by mere military power; that the sympathy of the people of the 
United States was with the inhabitants of Cuba; that they, the ministers, be- 
lieved the probable future condition of the island under Spanish rule might 
act perniciously on the slave population of the southern states; and in such 
case they held the instinct of self-preservation might call for the armed in- 
tervention of the United States, and that we might be justitied in wresting 
the island by force from Spain. 

39. Emancipation Proclamation, by President Lincoln. The preliminary 
proclamation was made September 22, 1802; and the definite proclamation 
January 1, 18C3, as follows: 

Whereas, on the 22d day of September, in the year of our Lord one thou- 
sand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the president 
of the United States, containing among other things the following, to wit : 

" That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand 
eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any state or 
designated part of a state, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against 
the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free ; and the ex- 
ecutive government of the United States, including the military and naval 
authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, 
and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any 
efforts they may make for their actual freedom. 

" That the executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclama- 
tion, designate the states and parts of states, if any, in which the people 
thereof, respectively, shall then he in rebellion against the United States ; and 
the fact that any state, or the people thereof, shall on that day be in good 
faith represented in the congress of the United States, by members chosen 
thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such state 
shall have participated, shall in the absence of strong countervailing testi- 
mony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such state, and the people thereof, 
are not then in rebellion against the United States." 

Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, president of the United States, by 
•virtue of the power in me vested as commander-in-chief of the army and 
navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the au- 
thority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war 
measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January in the 
year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accord- 
ance with my purpose so to do, publicly proclaimed for the full period of one 
hundred days from the day first above mentioned, order and designate, as the 
states and parts of states wherein the pefple thereof, respectively, are this 
day in rebellion against tie United! States, the following, to wit :

Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana (except the parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, 
Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James, Ascension, Assumption, Terre 
Bonne, Lafourche. Ste. Marie, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the city of 
New Orleans), Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North 
Carolina, and Virginia (except the forty-eight counties designated as AVest 
Virginia, and also the counties of Berkeley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth 
City, York, Princess Anne, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and 
Portsmouth) and which excepted parts are, for the present, left precisely as if 
this proclamation were not issued. 

And by virtue of the power and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and 
declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated states and parts 
of states are and henceforward shall be free; and that the executive govern- 
ment of the L'nited States, including the military and naval authorities 
thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. 

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from 
all violence, unless in necessary self defence ; and I recommend to them that, 
in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. 

And I further declare and make known that such persons, of suitable con- 
dition, will be received into the armed service of the United States, to garri- 
son forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts 
in said service. 

And upon this act. sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the 
constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of 
mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God. 

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my name, and caused the seal of 
the United States to be affixed. 

Done at the city of "Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our 
Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of 
the United States the eighty-seventh. 

By the President. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. 

William H. Seward, Secretary of State. 

40. Lieutenaxt-Gexeral Grant was appointed March 10, 1864, to the chief 
command of the armies of the United States. General Halleck was relieved 
of that command at his own request, and assigned as chief of staff of the 
army. General Sherman was appointed to succeed General Grant in the com- 
mand of the military division of the Mississippi, then composed of the de- 
partments of the Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee, and Arkansas. 

41. Basis of Agreement between Generals Sherman and Johnston, April 
18, 1866 : 

1. The contending armies now in the held to maintain the status quo until 
notice is given by the commanding general of any one to bis opponent, and 
reasonable time, say forty-eight hours, allowed. 



PROBLEMATICAL PROHIBITION.

2. The confederate armies now in existence to be disbanded and conducted 
to their several state capitals, there to deposit their arms and public property 
in the state arsenal, and each officer and man to execute and file an agreement 
to cease from acts of war, and to abide the action of both state and federal 
authorities. The number of arms and munitions of war to be reported to the 
chief of ordnance at Washington City, subject to the future action of the 
congress of the United States, and in the mean time to be used solely to main- 
tain peace and order within the borders of the states respectively. 

3. The recognition, by the executive of the United States, of the several 
state governments, on their officers and legislators taking the oath prescribed 
by the constitution of the United States ; and where conflicting state govern- 
ments have resulted from the war, the legitimacy of all shall be submitted to 
the supreme court of the United States. 

4. The re-establishment of the federal courts in the several states, with 
powers as defined by the constitution and laws of congress. 

5. The people and the inhabitants of all states to be guaranteed, so far as 
the executive can, their political rights and franchises, as well as their rights 
of person and property, as defined by the constitution of the United States 
and of the states respectively. 

6. The executive authority or government of the United States not to dis- 
turb any of the people by reason of the late war, so long as they live in peace 
and quiet, and abstain from acts of armed hostility, and obey the laws in ex- 
istence at the place of their residence. 

7. In general terms it is announced that the war is to cease; a general am- 
nesty, so far as the executive of the United States can command, on condition 
of the disbandinent of the confederate armies, the distribution of anus, and 
the resumption of peaceful pursuits by officers and men hitherto composing 
said armies. 

Not being fully empowered by our respective principals to fulfill these 
terms, we individually and officially pledge ourselves to promptly obtain au- 
thority, and will endeavor to carry out the above program. 

The above was signed by Sherman and Johnston ; and was drawn up, it is 
said, by Breckinridge.

in 1875. She defeated a prohibition amendment in 1889. 



Ohio, 1851, adopted a constitutional provision similar to that in Michigan. 
A law restricting the sale of liquor in some respects was passed in 185-4. The 
" Smith Sunday law " was enacted in 1882, the " Pond tax law "' the same year, 
and the " Scott tax law " in 1883. The supreme court of the state pronounced 
the last two unconstitutional. 



Minnesota, 185:2. passed a prohibitory law which was modified by subse- 
quent laws, and a high license law was passed in 1887. 



Rhode Island, 1852, passed a prohibitory law which was declared unconsti- 
tutional in 1853. It was amended in 1853 and ratified by the people. Another

in 1870, made more stringent in 1871. In 1873 its " beer clause " was repealed, 
and in 1875 license substituted. The law has been variously modified since, 
leaving local option as the provision under which half the towns in Massachu- 
setts now have prohibition. A prohibition amendment was voted upon in 1889 
and defeated. 



Vermont, 1852, passed a law which has continued in force to the present

liquors on Sundays and prohibited their sale to minors. 

During 1887, prohibition amendments were defeated by a small majority in 
Michigan, and by large majorities in Oregon. Tennessee, and Texas.

CHINESE IMMIGRATION" TO THE UNITED STATES. 

Unrestricted Chinese immigration to the United States prior to 18.82 was 
attended by so many evils that an act to execute certain treaty stipulations 
relating to the Chinese was passed by congress and approved May 6. 18.82. 
It had many defects, however, and failed to reach the end desired. Statis- 
tical customs returns mark the arrival of 39,579 Mongolians in 1882. and only 
8,021 in 1883 and 4,324 in 18S4. As a fact, fully as many entered the country 
(evasively) in 1883 as in 1882. Xew-comers were provided with bogus return 
certificates to which they were not legally entitled. Accordingly sufficient 
influence was exerted in 1S84 to procure some material amendment to the 
restriction act which had failed to restrict. In 188d the customs returns 
show only 22 arrivals. The act was passed to exclude Chinese laborers. Those 
registered by customs officials in 1885-6-7 were merchants, diplomats and 
suites, or travelers permitted to land without certificates. Still the law was 
evaded, and subterfuges were employed to secure the entry of laborers and 
females intended for servile or immoral purposes. In California, the gate 
through which the entrance of this uncongenial foreignism is made, the 
query with many citizens was, "How shall the people of the eastern states 
be intelligently awakened to the national importance of the Chinese ques- 
tion ?" 

The Chinese opium and gambling habits, with the institution of slave pros- 
titution, are denounced as likely to take root in this country. Antagonism to 
Chinese immigration is more energetic in San Francisco than elsewhere for 
excellent reasons, and on December 14, 1887, "Wong Ail Hung, the Chinese im- 
porter of female slaves, was sentenced to pay a fine of .82,000 and serve a term 
of ten years in the penitentiary. There were in 1887. in San Francisco, 800 
wives of merchants and laundrymen, and 300 degraded females. Between 
July 20, 1885, and October 31, 1887, 280 Chinese women landed in the city. 60 of 
whom were sent back to China. The following is the San Francisco collector's 
report of the Chinese certificates issued from the 1st to the 30th of November. 
1887 : 2,238, which were obtained by laborers, 2,103 of whom returned to Hong- 
Kong on 3 vessels, 34 who went to Panama on 3 vessels, 26 who departed for 
Honolulu on 4 ships, 13 who left for Mexico on 2 vessels, and 2 who sailed to 
Liverpool on the Servia; 40 merchants went to Hong-Kong during the month. 
There were 1,018 laborers' certificates on hand November 1. and 1,500 more 
were received, making a total of 2,518, from which 2,238 were issued and 2 can- 
celed, leaving but 278 certificates on hand. A tax of .?50 per capita is levied 
on all Chinese entering British Columbia. Prohibited by law from landing in 
this country, they are freely received in British Columbia, whence it is easy 
to gain access to the United States. Awakened at last to the facts of the 
case, and to the necessity of immediate action, the government submitted a 
treaty to China embracing total exclusion. The delay of China in replying 
caused the formation of a Total Exclusion Act, which lias been in iorce since 
October 1,1888.

♦Members of the legislature and members of congress are elected biennially. 

t Members of the legislature are elected annually. 

+ County officers are elected annually. 

§ Since the adoption of the present constitution of Ohio, in 1852, but one 
legislature has failed to hold an adjourned session in the year following the 
regular session, so, virtually, the legislature of Ohio has annual sessions.

" Speaker."— When this term originated it was the custom for the chief 
executive to deliver orally to the legislature such communication as he 
desired at the commencement of a session. The house so addressed responded 
to the communication. The presiding officer headed a procession of members 
of the house, waited upon the executive, and read the response, thus speaking 
for the whole body; therefrom originated the term speaker. Thomas Jefferson 
determined that his communications to congress should be made by written 
message, and that no answer would be expected. This led to a general change 
in this regard in all American legislative bodies.

AN EPITOME 

OF 

OFFICIAL SUCCESSION 

I68O DOWN TO 1891. 



HISTORICAL SUMMARY. 

Latitude north, 40 degrees, 41 minutes, and 45 degrees, 11 minutes ; longitude 
■west 70 degrees, 40 minutes, and 72 degrees, 28 minutes. 

Length, north and south, 108 miles; width, east and west, 20 to 90 miles. 
Area, 9,280 square miles. 

In 1622, Mason and Gorges jointly had a grant of the land from the Merrimack 
river to the Kennebec river, and in 1023 the first settlements were commenced 
at Portsmouth and at Dover. In 1629 the grant was divided, and a separate 
grant was made to Mason of that part west of the Piscataqua river, called New 
Hampshire, and to Gorges of the part east of the Piscataaqu, called Maine. In 
1641, Massachusetts extended her jurisdiction over New Hampshire, and raaia- 
tained her authority there until 1679, when, the case being brought before the 
highest court of appeal in England on provincial matters, it was decided that 
the claim of Massachusetts was illegal, and New Hampshire was constituted a 
separate province. In 1686, the charter of Massachusetts having been annulled, 
New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Narragansett were united in one 
royal province under President Dudley, and afterwards under Governor 
Andros. In 1689, upon news of the revolution in England, the government of 
Andros was overturned, and Massachusetts assumed her old charter. Some 
of the people of New Hampshire petitioned Massachusetts to be received 
under her government and protection till orders-should come from England, 
to w ich Massachusetts assented, and exercised a merely nominal authority 
there. In 1692 the province of New Hampshire was re-established, and ever 
after remained a separate province. In some cases, the same person was 
governor of New Hampshire and Massachusetts, but the governments were 
not connected. The legislatures, laws, courts, and officers, civil and military, 
were entirely distinct. The line between the provinces remained in dispute

The lieutenant-governors after 1741 are not known to have acted as chief 
magistrates, the governors being residents of the province. Before that, 
when the governor was resident in Massachusetts, the lieutenant-governors 
claimed to be chief magistrates, and often acted as such when the governor 
was out of the province. 

In May, 1775, the royal governor withdrew, and the province teas governed 
by a convention of which Matthew Tliorvton was president ; and in January, 
1776, a temporary constitution was adopted, under which ileshech Weare was 
unanimously elected president of the council, and chairman of the committee 
of safety, till June, 17S4.

NEW HAMPSHIRE 3IANXAL. 



GUBERNATORIAL VOTE OF NEW fiAifPSHTRE.— 1784 TO 1890. 



1784. 

Meshech Weare was probably unani- 
mously elected, as no vote is recorded. 
The chief magistrates were called 
" president " from 1784 to 1793. Then 
the term " governor " was substituted. 

1785. 
Party distinctions did not probably 
exist at this time. Subsequently, the 
terms federalist and republican desig- 
nated party divisions, and the leading 
candidates voted for are classed by 
their after party affiliations.

About this time, the federal party 
having ceased to exist, the contending 
political interests rallied about indi- 
vidual men, and though not differing 
materially in principle, espoused the 
cause of Jackson orAdams, contestants 
for the presidential chair. They were 
recognized as Jackson men, or Adams 
men, and these political contests be- 
came even more intensely bitter than 
where party lines had been drawn.

NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATORS. 165 



NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATORS. 

The following table of senators of the United States, from the first congress 
to the close of the fifty-first congress, has been carefully compiled from the 
records of the senate of the United States of America, expressly for the 
Manual of New Hampshire Official Successions, by Hosea B.Carter, actuary, 
in the office of secretary of state, Concord. 

Note. — Under article 1, section 3, clause 2, of the constitution of the 
United States, relating to the classification of senators in the first and suc- 
ceeding congresses, it was provided that, " Immediately after they shall be 
assembled in consequence of the first election, they shall be divided as equally 
as may be into three classes. The seats of the senators of the first class shall 
be vacated at the expiration of the second year, of the second class at the ex- 
piration of the fourth year, and of the third class at the expiration of the 
sixth year, so that one third may be chosen every second year." The classifi- 
cation of the senators of the first congress was made in accordance with this 
provision by lot. The following table shows the classes to which the senators 
of the first congress were assigned, and the succession to the close of the fifty- 
first congress.

CITY OF PORTSMOUTH — 1849. 



PORTSMOUTH, Rockingham Co. — Originally granted Aug. 10,1622, 
and settlement begun the following year at a place since known as " Odiorne's 
Point." The settlement made where the city now is went by the name of 
Piscataqua, also "Strawberry Bank," and received its present name from the 
government of Massachusetts in May, 1753. New Castle set off in 1C93, and 
Greenland partially in 1704, and fully in 1721. The eminent men of Ports- 
mouth in the eighteenth century were numerous, only one of whom shall be 
mentioned here. His speech in the legislature, then in session at Exeter, at 
the time of the fall of Ticonderoga, when public credit was exhausted and 
the patriots nearly discouraged, ought to go down to posterity beside that of 
the patriotic Henry. Arising from his seat in the house of representatives, 
of which he was speaker, John Langdon said: " I have one thousand dollars 
in hard money. I will pledge my plate for three thousand more. I have 
seventy hogsheads of Tobago rum, which will be sold for the most it will 
bring. They are at the service of the state. If we succeed in defending our 
firesides and our homes, I may be remunerated ; if we do not, then that prop- 
erty will be of no value to me. Our friend Stark, who so nobly maintained the 
honor of our state at Bunker Hill, may be safely entrusted with the honor of 
the enterprise, and we will check the progress of Burgoyne." The result was 
the victory at Bennington and the subsequent surrender of Burgoyne. John 
Langdon held many public positions in New Hampshire, and was the first pre- 
siding officer of the United States senate. Portsmouth accepted a city char- 
ter in 1840. 

City officers elected on the first Tuesday of August, annually, and inaugu- 
rated on the second Tuesday of the same month. Ward officers elected on the 
Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, biennially. Latest city 
election, August 5, 1890.

TENURE OF OFFICE UNDER THE AMENDED 
CONSTITUTION. 



EDITOR'S NOTICE. 

To the end that the time when certain officers take their places, by provision 
of the amended constitution, may he known, the following extracts from 
the Laws of 1877, chapter 33 and chapter 74, are cited herewith, to wit : 

By provision of " the amendments to the constitution " of New Hampshire, 
" which were proposed by the constitutional convention of said State at its 
session in December, 1S70, and which were submitted to, and legally adopted 
by, the qualified voters of said State at the annual election in March, 1S77,'' 
and made effective by chapter 33, Laws of 1877 (approved July 10, 1877), and 
chapter 74, Laws of 1877 (approved July 10, 1877) the offices of " county com- 
missioners, treasurers, registers of deeds, registers of probate, solicitors, and 
sheriffs " were made elective " on the Tuesday following the first Monday in 
November, biennially." 

" The true intent and meaning of this provision being that those constitu- 
tional amendments relating to elections and the tenure of office shall take 
place at such times as that there shall be an annual election in March next, 
under the old constitution, and that the officers then elected shall hold their 
offices for one year as they now do ; and that at the election in November, A. D. 
1878, all the officers above enumerated shall be elected under the amended con- 
stitution for two years, and shall take their places on the first Wednesday of 
June, 1879, and that upon that day all the amendments to the constitution 
shall take full effect. (Approved July 10, 1877.) " 

The latest biennial election occurred November 4, 1890. For official tables, 
giving detail of the vote in each of the ten counties of New Hampshire at 
said election, see pages 322-345 ; andthose next in order for tables of the official 
canvass of returns made to the secretary of state of the votes for representa- 
tives to the fifty-second congress, governor, councilors, and senators; and in 
connection with the vote for governc.r, complete detail of the number of 
names upon the check-list as used at the election Nov. 4, 1890, in each of the 
towns and city wards; also the complete detail of the United States census of 
1890, for each and every town, city, ward, and unincorporated place in the 
State of New Hampshire, as found by the census enumerators in June, 1890.

PRELIMINARY STEPS TOWARDS 

PERMANENT CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT 

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. 



On the 2Sth day of December, 1775, the fifth and last provincial congress 
of New Hampshire voted to " take up civil government, to continue dur- 
ing the present contest with Great Britain, and resolve themselves into a 
house of representatives, and then choose a council to continue one year 
from the 21st day of December current." 

On the same day the following gentlemen were appointed a committee 
to frame and bring in a draft of a new constitution for the rule and gov- 
ernment of this colony : 

Matthew Thornton, Mesheck Weare, Ebenezer Thompson, Wyseman 
Claggett, and Benjamin Giles; and two days later John Giddinge and 
Joseph Badger were added to the committee. 

On the 5th day of January, 1776, the committee reported and the con- 
gress passed the following vote: 

That this congress take up civil government for this colony in manner, 
and form following, viz. : 

In Congress at Exeter, 

January 5, 1776. 

We, the members of the congress of the colony of New Hampshire, 
chosen and appointed by the free suffrages of the people of said colony, 
and authorized and empowered by them to meet together and use such 
means and pursue such measures as we should judge best for the public 
good, and in particular to establish some form of government, provided 
that measure should be recommended by the continental congress, and a 
recommendation to that purpose having been transmitted to us from the 
said congress, have taken into our serious consideration the unhappy cir- 
cumstances into which this colony is involved by means of many griev- , 
ous and oppressive acts of the British parliament, depriving us of our 
natural and constitutional rights and privileges; to enforce obedience to 
which acts, a powerful fleet and army have been sent into this country by 
the ministry of Great Britain, who have exercised a wanton and cruel 
abuse of their power in destroying the lives and properties of the colonists (J 
in many places with fire and sword, taking the ships and lading from 
many of the honest and industrious inhabitants of this colony employed 
in commerce agreeable to the laws and customs a long time used here. 




PRELIMINARY STEPS. 



421 




The sudden and abrupt departure of His Excellency John Wentworth, 
Esq., our late governor, and several of the council, leaving us destitute of 
legislation ; and no executive courts being open to punish criminal offend- 
ers, whereby the lives and properties of the honest people of this colony 
are liable to the machinations and evil designs of wicked men; 

Therefore, for the preservation of peace and good order, and for the 
security of the lives and properties of the inhabitants of this colony, we 
conceive ourselves reduced to the necessity of establishing a form of 
government, to continue during the present unhappy and unnatural con- 
test with Great Britain ; protesting and declaring that we never sought to 
throw off our dependence upon Great Britain, but felt ourselves happy 
under her protection while we could enjoy our constitutional rights and 
privileges, and that we shall rejoice if such a reconciliation between us 
and our parent state can be effected as shall be approved by the conti- 
nental congress, in whose prudence and wisdom we confide. 

Accordingly, pursuant to the trust reposed in us, we do resolve that this 
congress assume the name, power, and authority of a house of represent- 
atives, or assembly, for the colony of New Hampshire; and that said 
house then proceed to choose twelve persons, being reputable freeholders 
and inhabitants within this colony, in the following manner, viz. : Five 
in the county of Rockingham, two in the county of Strafford, two in the 
county of Hillsborough, two in the county of Cheshire, and one in the 
county of Grafton, to be a distinct and separate branch of the legislature, 
bv the' name of a council for this colony, to continue as such until the third 
Wednesday in December next, any seven of whom to be a quorum to do 
business. 

That such council appoint their president; aud in his absence that the 
senior councilor preside. 

Tuat a secretary be appointed by both branches, who may be a coun- 
cilor or otherwise as they shall choose. 

That no act or resolve shall be valid and put into execution unless 
agreed to and passed by both branches of the legislature. 

"That all public officers for the said colony and each county for the cur- 
rent year be appointed by the council and assembly, except the several 
clerks of the executive courts, who shall be appointed by the justices of 
the respective courts. 

That all bills, resolves, or votes for raising, levying, and collecting 
money, originate in the house of representatives. 

That at any session of the council and assembly neither branch shall 
adjourn for any longer time than from Saturday till the next Monday 
without consent of the other. 

And it is further resolved that if the present unhappy dispute with Great 
Britain should continue longer than this present year, and the continental 
congress give no instructions or directions to the contrary, the council 
be chosen by the people of each respective county in such manner as the 
council and house of representatives shall order. 

That general and field officers of the militia, on any vacancy, be ap- 
pointed by the two houses, and all inferior officers be chosen by the re- 
spective companies. 

That all officers of the army be appointed by the two houses, except they 
should direct otherwise in case of any emergency. 

That all civil officers for the colony and for each county be appointed 
and the time of their continuance in office be determined by the two 
houses, except clerks of courts, and county treasurers, and recorders of 
deeds. 

That a treasurer and a recorder of deeds for each county be annually 
chosen by the people of each county respectively; the votes for such 
officers to be returned to the respective courts of general sessions of the 
peace in the county, there to be ascertained as the council and assembly 
shall hereafter direct.

Tl)at precepts in the name of the council and assembly, signed by the 
president of the council and the speaker of the house of representatives, 
shall issue annually, at or before the first day of November, for the choice 
of a council and house of representatives, to be returned by the third 
Wednesday in December then next ensuing, in such manner as the coun- 
cil and assembly shall hereafter prescribe. 



COLONY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 
BY THE COUNCIL AND ASSEMBLY, A PROCLAMATION. 

Whereas, the congress of this colony have, agreeable to a recommenda- 
tion from the honorable continental congress, resolved on and formed 
themselves upon a plan of government by a council and house of repre- 
sentatives, which plan has been published, and dispersed through the 
colony, and is to be in force during the present dispute with Great Britain, 
unless otherwise advised by the continental congress; conformable to 
which said plan of government, the council and assembly have chosen 
and appointed the proper officers for the administration of justice in the 
several counties, who are to be sworn to the faithful discharge of their 
several trusts. It is therefore expected that no person or persons claim 
or exercise any civil authority but such as are, or may be, appointed as 
aforesaid, on the penalty of being deemed inimical to their country. 

Provided, nevertheless, and this proclamation is intended not to inter- 
fere with the power of the necessary committees of inspection, or safety, 
chosen in the several towns through the colony by virtue and in conse- 
quence of any recommendation or resolves of the continental congress. 

Whereof, ail persons concerned are to take due notice, and govern 
themselves accordingly. 

And at the same time it is earnestly recommended that in this distress- 
ing day of public calamity, when our enemies are watching all opportu- 
nities to ensnare and divide us, every one would strive to prevent, and, 
if possible, to quell all appearance of party spirit, to cultivate and pro- 
mote peace, union, and good order, and by all means in their power to 
discourage profaneness, immorality, and injustice. 

By order of the council and assembly at Exeter, the 19th day of March, 
Anno Domini 1776. 

M. WEARE, 
President of the Council. 

E. Thompson, 
Secretary. 

God save the people. 



NEW HAMPSHIRE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 

On the 11th day of June, 1776, the New Hampshire house of representa- 
tives passed the following vote: 

"That Samuel Cutts, Timothy Walker, and John Dudley, Esqrs., be a 
committee of this house to join a committee of the honorable board, to 
make a draft of a declaration of this general assembly for independence 
of the United Colonies on Great Britain." 

In Council, June 11, 1776. 

"A vote appointing Sam'l Cutts, Timothy Walker, and John Dudley a 
committee, with such as the board should join, to make a draft of a

declaration of the general assembly for independence of the United Col- 
onies on Great Britain, brought up, read, and concurred, with this amend- 
ment, that the commiltee prepare a draft setting forth the sentiments and 
opinion of the council and assembly of this colony relative to the United 
Colonies forming themselves into independent states, in order that when 
passed the same may be transmitted to our delegates at the continental 
congress, and that Messrs. Hurd, Claggett, and the secretary * be added to 
the committee." 

June 15, 1776. 

" The committee of both houses, appointed to prepare a draft setting 
forth the sentiments and opinion of the council and assembly of this col- 
ony relative to the United Colonies setting up an independent state, made 
report as on file, which report being read and considered, voted unani- 
mously that the report of said committee be received aud accepted, and 
that the draft by them brought in be sent, to our delegates at the conti- 
nental congress forthwith as the sense of this house." 

INDEPENDENCE. 

The draft maSe by the committee of both houses, relating to independ- 
ency, is as follows, viz. : 

Whereas, it now appears on undoubted fact, that notwithstanding all 
the dutiful petitions and decent remonstrances from the American colo- 
nies, and the utmost exertions of their best friends in England on their 
behalf, the British ministry, arbitrary and vindictive, are yet determined 
to reduce, by fire and sword, our bleeding country to their absolute obe- 
dience; and for this purpose, in addition to their own forces, have en- 
gaged great numbers of foreign mercenaries, who may now be on their 
passage here, accompanied by a formidable fleet, to ravage and plunder 
the seacoast; from all which we may reasonably expect the most dismal 
scenes of distress the ensuing year, unless we exert ourselves by evei'y 
means and precaution possible; and, whereas, we, of this colony of New 
Hampshire, have the example of several of the most respectable of our 
sister colonies before us for entering upon that most important step of a 
disunion from Great Britain, and declaring ourselves free and independ- 
ent of the crown thereof, being impelled thereto by the most violent and 
injurious treatment; and it appearing absolutely necessary in this most 
critical juncture of our public affairs that the honorable the continental 
congress, who have this important object under their immediate consid- 
eration, should be also informed of our resolutions thereon without loss 
of time, we do hereby declare that it is the opinion of this assembly that 
our delegates at the continental congress should be instructed, and they 
are hereby instructed, to join with the other colonies in declaring the 
thirteen United Colonies a free and independent state, solemnly pledg- 
ing our faith and honor that we will, on our parts, support the measure 
with our lives and fortunes; and that in consequence thereof, they, the 
continental congress, on whose wisdom, fldelity.and integrity we rely.may 
enter into and form such alliances as they may judge most conducive to 
the present safety and future advantage of these American colonies; 
provided, the regulation of our internal police be under the direction of 
our own assembly.

In the House of Representatives, 

April 5, 1781. 

Whereas, the present situation of affairs in this state make it necessary 
that a full and free representation of the inhabitants thereof should meet 
in convention for the sole purpose of forming and laying a permanent 
plan or system of government for the future happiness and well-being of 
the good "people of this state, and this house having received instructions 
from a considerable part of their constituents for that purpose; therefore, ,.-.ijj| 
voted and resolved that the honorable the president of the council issue , ..a|, 
to every town, parish, and district within that part of this state east of ' 
Connecticut river a precept, recommending to them to elect and choose 
one or more persons, as they shall judge it expedient, to convene at Con- 
cord in said state, on the first Tuesday of June next, for the purpose afore- 
said, saving to the small towns liberty to join two or more together if they 
sec fit, to elect and send one person to represeht them in said convention. •-, 

And such system or form ot government as may be agreed upon by such 
convention being printed, and sent to each and every town, parish, and 
district in this state, for the approbation of the people, which system or 
form of government being approved of by such number of the inhabi- 
tants of this state in their respective town meetings, legally calledffor

that purpose, as shall be ordered by said convention, and a return of such 
approbation being made to said convention and confirmed by them, shall 
remain as a permanent system or form of government of this state, and 
not otherwise. And if the first proposed system or form of government 
should be rejected by the people, that the same convention shall be em- 
powered to proceed and make such amendments and alterations from 
time to time as may be necessary, provided, always, that after such alter- 
ations the same be sent out for the approbation of the people, in manner 
as aforesaid, and that the charge and expense ot each member of such 
convention be defrayed by their respective electors. 

Sent up by Captain Pickering. 

In Council, April 6, 1781. 

Resolve for calling a convention to meet at Concord on the first Tuesday 
of June next, to form a system or plan of government, brought up, read, 
and concurred. 

Pursuant to the foregoing votes a convention of delegates met in Con- 
cord on the first Tuesday of June, 17S1. As the journal of the convention 
cannot be found, it is not easy to tell how many sessions it held. Dr. 
Belknap says nine. 

It continued a live, active body through a period of two years and al- 
most five months, during which it "framed" three constitutions, which 
were successively submitted to the people. Two were rejected. 

The following is the constitution framed by the convention and ratified 
by the people in 1733, which "took place " on the first Wednesday of June, 
1784 : 

A CONSTITUTION, 

CONTAINING A BILL OF RIGHTS, AND FORM OF GOVERNMENT 

Agreed upon by the delegates of the people of the state of New Hamp- 
shire, in convention held at Concord, on the first Tuesday of June, 1783; 
submitted to and approved of by the people of said slate, and established 
by their delegates in convention, October 31, 1783. 

PART I. 

THE BILL OF RIGHTS. 

I. All men are born equally free and independent ; therefore, all gov- 
ernment of right originates from the people, is founded in consent, and 
instituted for the general good. 

II. All men have certain natural, essential, and inherent rights, among 
which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possess- 
ing, and protecting property, and, in a word, of seeking and obtaining 
happiness. 

III. When men enter into a state of society, they surrender up some of 
their natural rights to that society, in order to insure the protection of 
others ; and without such an equivalent the surrender is void. 

TV. Among the natural rights, some are in their very nature unaliena- 
ble, because no equivalent can be given or received for them. Of this 
kind are the lights of conscience. ■ '_;-•,£ 

V. Every individual has a natural and unalienable right to worship Oou 
according to the dictates of his own conscience and reason; and no sub- 
ject shall be hurt, molested, or restrained in his person, liberty, or estate, 



m,i -'""■'-' :: - ■^■■-i.'i.iVhi.r.---- ■ ' ' '■■■■""' V ■ iniaitin 




430 NEW HAMPSHIRE MANUAL. 

for worshiping God in the manner and season most agreeable to the dic- 
tates of his own conscience, or for his religious profession, sentiments, 
or persuasion, provided he doth not disturbthe public peace, or disturb 
others in their religious worship. 

VI. As morality and piety, rightly grounded on evangelical principles, 
-will give the best and greatest security to government, and will lay in the 
hearts of men the strongest obligations to due subjection, and as the 
knowledge of these is most likely to be propagated through a society by 
the institution of the public worship of the Deity, and of public instruc- 
tion in morality and religion, therefore, to promote those important pur- 
poses, the people of this state have a right to impower, and do hereby 
fully impower, the legislature to authorize from time to time the several 
towns, parishes, bodies corporate, or religious societies within this state, 
to make adequate provision at their own expense for the support and 
maintenance of public Protestant teachers of piety, religion, and mor- 
ality; 

Provided, notwithstanding, that the several towns, parishes, bodies corpo- 
rate, or religious societies, shall at all times have the exclusive right of 
electing their own public teachers, and of contracting with them for their 
support and maintenance. And no person of any one particular religious 
sect or denomination shall ever be compelled'to pay towards the sup- 
port of the teacher or teachers of another persuasion, sect, or denomi- 
nation. 

• And every denomination of Christians demeaning themselves quietly, 
and as good subjects of the state, shall be equally under the protection of 
the law ; and no subordination of any one sect or denomination to anoth- 
er shall ever be established by law. 

And nothing herein shall be understood to affect any former contracts 
made for the support of the ministry; but all such contracts shall remain, 
and be in the same state as if this constitution had not been made. 

VII. The people of this state have the sole and exclusive right of gov- 
erning themselves as a free, sovereign, and independent state, and do, and 
forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and 
right pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them 
expressly delegated to the United States of America in congress assem- 
bled. 

VIII. All power residing originally in and being derived from the 
people, all the magistrates and officers of government are their sub- 
stitutes and agents, and at all times accountable to them. 

IX. No office or place whatsoever in government shall be hereditary, 
the abilities and integrity requisite in all not being transmissible to 
posterity or relations. 

X. Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and 
security of the whole community, and not for the private interest or 
emolument of any one man, family, or class of men ; therefore, whenever 
the ends of government are perverted and public liberty manifestly 
endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people 
may, and of right ought, to reform the old or establish a new government. 
The doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is 
absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind. 

XI. All elections ought to be free, and every inhabitant of the state, 
having the proper qualifications, has equal right to elect and be elected 
into office. 

XII. Every member of the community has a right to be protected by it 
in the enjoyment of his life, liberty, and property; he is therefore bound 
to contribute his share in the expense of such protection, and to yield his 
personal service when necessary, or an equivalent. But no part of a 
man's property shall be taken from him, or applied to public uses without 
his own consent, or that of the representative body of the people. Nor 









CONSTITUTION OF 1784. 431 

are the inhabitants of the state controllable by any other laws than those 
to which they or their representative body have given their consent. 

XIII. No person who is conscientiously scrupulous about the lawful- 
ness of bearing arms shall be compelled thereto, provided he will pay an 
-equivalent. 

XIV. Every subject of this state is entitled to a certain remedy, by hav- 
ing recourse to the laws, for all injuries he may receive in his person, 
property, or character, to obtain right and justice freely, without being 
obliged to purchase it; completely, and without any denial; promptly, 
and without delay, conformably to the laws. 

XV. No subjeetshail be held to answer for any crime or offence until 
the same is fully and plainly, substantially and formally, described to 
him; or be compelled to accuse or furnish evidence against himself. And 
every subject shall have a right to produce all proofs that maybe fav- 
orable to himself; to meet the witnesses against him face to face, and to 
he fully heard in his defence by himselt and counsel. And no subject 
shall be arrested, imprisoned, despoiled, or deprived of his property, 

immunities, or privileges, put out of the protection of the law, exiled, or 
deprived of his life, liberty, or estate, but by the judgment of his peers, or 
the law of the land. 

XVI. No subject shall be liable to be tried, after an acquittal, for the 
same crime or offence. Nor shall the legislature make any law that shall 
subject any person to a capital punishment, excepting for the govern- 
ment of the army and navy, and the militia in actual service, without 
trial by jury. 

XVII. In criminal prosecutions, the trial of facts in the vicinity where 
they happen is so essential to the security of the life, liberty, and estate 
of the citizen, that no crime or offence ought to be tried in any other 
county than that in which it is committed, except in cases of general 
insurrection in any particular county, when it shall appear to the judges 
of the superior court that an impartial trial cannot be had in the county 
"where the offence maybe committed, and upon their report the assembly 
shall think proper to direct the trial in the nearest county in which an 
impartial trial can be obtained. 

XVIII. All penalties ought to be proportioned to the nature of the 
offence. No wise legislature will affix the same punishment to the 
crimes of theft, forgery, and the like, which they do to those of murder 
and treason ; where the same undistinguishing severity is exerted against 
all offences, the people are led to forget the real distinction in the crimes 
themselves, and to commit the most flagrant with as little compunction 
as they do those of the lightest dye; for the same reason a multitude of 
sanguinary laws is both impolitic and unjust, the true design of all 
punishments being to reform, not to exterminate, mankind. 

XIX. Every subject hath a right to be secure from all unreasonable 
searches and seizures of his person, bis houses, his papers, and all his 
possessions. All 'warrants, therefore, are contrary to this right, if the 
cause or foundation of them be not previously supported by oath or 
affirmation, and if the order in the warrant to a civil officer to make 
search in suspected places, or to arrest one or more suspected persons, 
or to seize their property, be not accompanied with a special designation 
of the persons or object's of search, arrest, and seizure; and no warrant 
ought to be issued but in cases and with the formalities prescribed by the 
laws. 

XX. In all controversies concerning property, and in all suits between 
two or more persons, except in cases in which it has been heretofore 
otherwise used and practiced, the parties have a light to a trial by jury; 
and this method of procedure shall be held sacred, unless in causes aris- 
ing on the high seas, aud such as relate to mariners' wages, the legis- 
lature shall think it necessary hereafter to alter it. 



!? 



XXI. In order to reap the fullest advantage of the inestimable priv- 
ilege of the trial by jury, great care ought to be taken that none but 
qualified persons should be appointed to serve; and such ought to be 
fully compensated for their travel, time, and attendance. 

XXII. The liberty of the press is essential to the security of freedom in 
a state; it ought, therefore, to he inviolably preserved. 

XXIII. Retrospective laws are highly injurious, oppressive, and unjust. 
No such laws, therefore, should be made, either for the decision of civil 
causes or the punishment of offences. 

XXIV. A well-regulated militia is the proper, natural, and sure defence 
of a state. 

XXV. Standing armies are dangerous to liberty, and ought not to be 
raised or kept up without the consent of the legislature. 

XXVI. In all cases, and at all times, the military ought to be under 
strict subordination to and governed by the civil power. 

XXVII. No soldier in time of peace" shall be quartered in any house 
without the consent of the owner; and in time of war such quarters 
ought not to be made but by the civil magistrate, in a manner ordained 
by the legislature. 

XXVIII. No subsidy, charge, tax, impost, or duty shall be established, 
fixed, laid, or levied under any pretext whatsoever without the consent 
of the people, or their representatives in the legislature, or authority de- 
rived from that body. 

XXIX. The power of suspending the laws, or the execution of them, 
ought never to be exercised but by the legislature, or by authority de- 
rived therefrom, to be exercised in such particular cases only as the 
legislature shall expressly provide for. 

XXX. The freedom of deliberation, speech, and debate, in either house 
of the legislature, is so essential to the rights of the people that it cannot 
be the foundation of any action, complaint, or prosecution in any other 
court or place whatsoever. 

XXXI. The legislature ought frequently to assemble for the redress of 
grievances, for correcting, strengthening, and confirming the laws, and 
for making new ones, as the common good may require. 

XXXII. The people have a right in a ■ orderly and peaceable manner to 
assemble and consult upon the common good, give instructions to their 
representatives, and to request of the legislative body, by way of petition 
or remonstrance, redress of the wrongs done them, and of the grievances 
they suffer. 

XXXIII. No magistrate or court of law shall demand excessive bail or 
sureties, impose excessive fines, ormriiet cruel or unusual punishments. 

XXXIV. Mo person can in any case be subjected to law martial, or to 
any pains or penalties by virtue of that law, except those employed in 
the army or navy, and except the militia in actual service, but by author- 
ity of the legislature. 

XXXV. It is essential to the preservation of the rights of every individ- 
ual, his life, liberty, property, and character, that there be an impartial 
interpretation of the laws, and administration ofjnstice. It is the right 
of every citizen to be tried by judges as impartial as the lot of humanity 
will admit. 

It is therefore not only the best policy, but for the security of the rights 
of the people, that the judges of the supreme (or superior) judicial court 
should hold their offices so long as they behave well; and that they 
should have honorable salaries, ascertained and established by standing 
laws. 

XXXVI. Economy being a most essential virtue io all states, especially 
in a young one, no pension shall be granted but inconsideration of actual 
services, and such pensions ought to be granted with great caution by the 
legislature, and never for more than one year at a time. 

XXXVII. In the government of this state the three essential powers 




CONSTITUTION OF 1784. 433 

thereof, to -wit, the legislative, executive, anil judicial, ought to be kept 
as separate from and independent of each other as the nature of a free 
government will admit, or as is consistent with that chain of connection 
that binds the whole fabric of the constitution in one indissoluble bond 
of unity and amity. 

SXX'VTII. A frequent recurrence to the fundamental principles of the 
constitution, and a constant adherence to justice, moderation, temper- 
ance, industry, frugality, and all the social virtues, are indispensably 
necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty and good government; the 
people ought, therefore, to have a particular regard to all those principles 
in the choice of their officers and representatives; and they have a right 
to require of their lawgivers and magistrates an exact and constant ob- 
servance ot them in the formation and execution of the laws necessary 
for the good administration of government. 

PART II. 

THE FORM OF GOVEUNMENT. 

The people inhabiting the territory formerly called the province of New 
Hampshire, do hereby solemnly and mutually agree with each other to 
form themselves into a free, sovereign, and independent body politic, or 
state, by the name of the State of New Hampshire. 

THE GENERAL COURT. 

The supreme legislative power within this state shall be vested in the 
senate and house of representatives, each of which shall have a negative 
on the other. The senate and house shall assemble every year on the 
first Wednesday of June, and at such other times as they may judge neces- 
sarv; and shall dissolve and be dissolved, seven days next preceding the said 
first Wednesday of June, and shall be styled The General Court of New 
Hampshire. The general court shall forever have full power and author- 
ity to erect and constitute judicatories and courts of record, or other 
courts, to be hold en in the name of the state, for the hearing, trying, and 
determining all manner of crimes, offences, pleas, processes, plaints, 
actions, causes, matters and things whatsoever, arising or happening 
within this state, or between or concerning persons inhabiting or re- 
siding, or brought within the same, whether the same be criminal or 
civil, or whether the crimes be capital or not capital, and whether the 
said pleas be real, personal, or mixed ; and for the awarding and issuing 
execution thereon. To which courts and judicatories are hereby given 
and granted full power and authority, from time to time, to administer 
oaths or affirmations for the better discovery of truth in any matter in 
controversy, or depending before them. 

And farther, full power and authority are hereby given and granted to 
the said general court, from time to time, to make, ordain, and establish 
all manner of wholesome and reasonable orders, laws, statutes, ordi- 
nances, directions, and instructions, either with penalties or without, so 
as the same be not repugnant or contrary to this constitution, as they 
may judge for the benefit and welfare of this state, and for the governing 
and ordering thereof, and of the subjects of the same, for the necessary 
support and defence of the government thereof; and to name and settle 
annually, or provide by fixed laws for the naming and settling, all civil 
officers within this state; such officers excepted the election and appoint- 
ment of whom are hereafter in this form of government otherwise pro- 
vided for; and to set forth the several duties, powers, and limits of the 
several civil and military officers of this state, and the forms of such 
oaths or affirmations as shall be respectively administered unto them for

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTIONS, 1791—1869. 

Pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of 1784, the legislature, in June, 
1791, ordered preeepts to be issued to the several towns and places in this state to 
elect delegates to a convention to revise the constitution. Accordingly town meet- 
ings were held and delegates chosen on the 8th day of August, 1791. "The conven- 
tion met in Concord on the 7th day of September following, and continued in ses- 
sion until the 16th of the same month, when, after having appointed a committee 
to which were referred the constitution and the amendments that had been pro- 
posed in convention, they adjourned to the 8th day of February, 1792. 

The convention reassembled according to adjournment, and proceeded to the 
consideration of the report of the committee. After adopting seventy-two amend- 
ments and making provision for submitting them to the people for ratification or 
rejection at town meetings to be held on the 7th day of May, 1792, the conven- 
tion again adjourned to the 30th of the same month. Reassembled according to ad- 
journment, the convention found on canvassing the returns from the several towns 
that forty-six of the seventy-two amendments had been ratified by the people. But 
on account of the rejection of so many of the proposed amendments, there were 
some inconsistencies in the constitution as adopted by the people, to correct which 
others were prepared and sent to the people to be voted on on the 27th day of Au- 
gust, 1792. 

The convention on June 5 adjourned to the 5th day of September, when they re- 
assembled, and finding that the supplementary amendments had been ratified, dis- 
solved on the same day, having been in existence one year less one day. 

By an act of the legislature approved December 14, 1792, that part of the new con- 
stitution relating to the election of officers took effect on the first day of February, 
1793, and the whole of said constitution took effect on the first Wednesday of June 
of the same year. Notwithstanding several attempts were made to revise it, the 
constitution of 1793, without alteration, was the fundamental law of the state for 
nearly sixty years. 

The following table shows the dates of the approval of the several acts of the leg- 
islature subsequent to 1793, providing for taking the sense of the qualified voters on 
the expediency of calling a convention to revise the constitution, and the aggre- 
gate affirmative and negative votes on the question as returned by the town clerks:

The vote under the act of 1849 showing a large majority in favor of calling a con- 
vention, the legislature of 1850, by an act approved July 8, provided for a convention 
and appropriated forty thousand dollars to nav its expenses. 

The convention met in Concord on the 6th day of ^November, 1850, and continued 
in session, with one adjournment from the 22d of November to the 3d of December,

until the 3d day of January, 1851. On that day, having adopted many amendments 
and provided for submitting them to the qualified voters of the state, they again 
adjourned to the 16th of April then next. The popular sentiment was strongly 
against the action of the convention, as was shown by the canvass of the returns of 
the votes cast, every proposed amendment having received a large majority 
against it. 

'The convention adjourned, without day, on the 17th of April, 1851, after having at 
the adjourned session prepared and provided for submitting to the qualified voters 
three amendments,— abolishing the religious test, the property qualification, and 
providing anew mode of amending the constitution. The amendment abolishing 
the property qualification was ratified, the other two were rejected. 

Under the acts of 1360 and 1864, a majority of the votes in each case was in favor 
of calling a convention, but the legislature did not deem it expedient to call one. 

A convention met in Concord on the 6th day of December, 1876, the legal voters 
under the act ;f lE'r't having giv&r. a lirga majority in favor :i such a tcnvinticn. 
The convention was in session eleven days. All of its proposed amendments ex- 
cepting two were ratified by the legal voters. The journal of that convention was 
published and distributed throughout the state. 

Under the act of 1885 a small vote was cast, but a majority being in favor of a 
convention, the legislature of 1887 made provision for one. It met in Concord on 
the 2d day of January, 1889, and finally adjourned on the 11th day of the same 
month. It proposed several amendments, all but two of which were ratified by 
the people. 

The following is the constitution as amended by that convention and ratified by 
the legal voters on the 12th day of March, 1889:
